Limerick Mental Health Week has come to a close, leaving behind a trail of inspiration, support, and a sense of community that will resonate with all of us. We embarked on a journey to raise awareness and promote positive mental health, the success of this endeavor would not have been possible without the generous contributions of numerous agencies and organisations. We’d like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to each of them for their unwavering support.
30 Organizations, 42 Events, Countless Stories
Limerick Mental Health Week was a remarkable feat, with 30 organizations coming together to host 42 separate events across Limerick city and county. The diversity and range of these events were truly inspiring, reflecting the multi-faceted nature of mental health and well- being. From the Freemasons lodge tours to Treaty Brewery visits, from wellness activities to local rock band performances, and from art exhibitions to movie nights in the Wickham Way, there was something for everyone.
Engaging with the Community
Throughout the week, we had the privilege of engaging with nearly 15,000 individuals. It was heartwarming to see so many people taking part in our events, sharing their experiences, and learning about the importance of mental health. It was a collective effort, and we couldn’t have done it without you.
The Highlight: Choral Union Concert
One of the standout moments of the week was the Choral Union concert held in St. Mary’s Cathedral. This beautiful event was organized by the talented Malcolm Green and hosted by The bishopric of Tuam, Limerick, and Killaloe, Michael Burrows. It brought the community together through the power of music and solidarity, leaving a lasting impact on all those in attendance. There was 6 choirs from a variety of backgrounds that provided an unforgettable evening.
