MyMind is working hard to fill this gap through a mental health service that is easily within everyone’s reach.”MyMind believes that early intervention is the most effective way to prevent mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and stress from turning into severe problems. By providing fast and easy access to services in the community, MyMind enables people to access supports for mental health problems early on.MyMind has impacted on more than 20,000 lives in Ireland since being set up in 2006.“Since we opened the Limerick centre , we have seen demand for our services grow rapidly, with more and more clients referring friends and family members to our centre. This shows just how much of a need there is for MyMind’s uniquely accessible service,” said Mr Fikert.Speaking at the MyMind’s first anniversary celebrations in the Hunt Museum this week, Fine Gael councillor Daniel Butler hailed the mental health service as a “great attribute” to the city. He praised the quality of its service and said that by being located in the heart of the city centre, it “challenges the stigma around mental health”.“The conversation about mental health is growing. We are getting better at talking about it. We have accumulated the language and we now need to accumulate the understanding to start bridging that gap,” Cllr Butler commented.For more details on MyMind log onto NewsLocal NewsMore than 800 appointments at Limerick mental heatlhcare centreBy Alan Jacques – April 30, 2015 699 Facebook Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Advertisementlast_img read more
