Spring Talk with Limerick Mental Health Assocation

Following on from our Spring Talk with the Community Crisis Response Team Limerick, our next talk will be taking place on March 27th at ICHAS from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. The theme is mental health and we’re delighted to have not one but two speakers on the night, Claire Flynn of the Limerick Mental Health Association and our very own Ailbe Coffey.

The Importance of Mental Health in the Region

The Limerick Mental Health Association promotes positive mental health across Limerick City and County. Founded in 2002 they are located in the heart of Limerick City. Their mission is simple, to have a Limerick where people value their own and each others’ mental health. They also want to ensure that when people experience mental health difficulties they can recover their wellbeing and reach their full potential within an informed and supportive community.

Last year they ran an extremely successful week of events and talks. One of the highlights was the Shine a Light on the River for Mental Health.

Claire will chat in detail about the association as well as on the importance of focusing on your mental health.
