Limerick Mental Health Association
Limerick Mental Health Association was founded in 2002 by a group of individuals who recognised the need for support and resources for those affected by mental health challenges in the local community. Since then the association has worked to raise awareness, reduce stigma and promote positive mental health through a variety of programmes and initiatives. Today, LMHA continues to serve as a vital resource for individuals and families seeking support and guidance on their mental health journey. We have a permanent home in Sexton St in the heart of Limerick City.
We aim to promote positive mental health and well-being in the Limerick community and support adults on their recovery journey through peer-led engagement and activities.
