Le Chéile Peer Support Project

Le Chéile was set up in 2003 and is Limerick Mental Health Association’s peer support project. Le Chéile is for people who are having difficulty coping, under the care of the mental health services, or are experiencing social isolation, and or loneliness as a result.

New member Drop in

We have a new member drop in every Thursday from 10am to 1pm. This is specifically for people who think they might like to start coming to Le Chéile but would like more information first. You will get a tour of the building, have a cup of tea and meet the manager Claire who will advise on what classes are on and what you might get out of attending Le Chéile.

Why should you come to Le Chéile

Le Chéile is a friendly, welcoming place.  It is non-judgemental and recovery based with our main focus on the individual.

We provide peer support, friendship, activities and wellness programmes.  Members can attend as often or as little as they like, they can participate in activities or not participate.

Some members just pop in for a chat and a cuppa when they are in town.  There are no expectations of any of our members to attend regularly or to participate regularly.   We support people in their recovery and we promote positive mental health.  Check out some testimonials from our past and current members.

If you think you or someone you know would benefit from attending Le Chéile, please contact us at 0872485742 / 061446786 or email us at info@limerickmentalhealth.ie.  Or you can drop in any Thursday morning between 10am and 1pm to have a chat.

A little bit more detail about Le Chéile

The Le Chéile Limerick Project aims to create a non-judgmental environment where people feel relaxed and valued.

We promote social inclusion through a variety of activities and programs.  We support health and well-being through social, recreational and educational activities – with a focus on development of wellness and recovery groups (WRAP – Wellness Recovery Action Planning).  We provide opportunities for participants to make new friends and make community connections that are sustainable.   We provide opportunities for participants to become peer volunteers through the activities.  The project provides a wide range of creative activities that encourage participation.
