100km in a Month for Limerick Mental Health

The Covid-19 pandemic has been an uncertain, challenging and lonely time for our members and the wider public. The demand for LMHA to promote positive mental health and support those who may be feeling anxious, isolated and vulnerable is more prevalent now than ever. 

LMHA has had to radically modify our service delivery model over the past few months. We have had to transition many face to face services, usually delivered at our Le Chéile premises on Sexton Street, to remote supports. This has included providing peer support on line and over the phone, ensuring that our most vulnerable members have access to the necessary technology to be supported in this manner and delivering care packages.

Now,  as we begin to restart our person to person recovery activities and support groups after the long Covid-19 closure, we need to invest in relevant supplies e.g. social distancing notices, anti-bacterial gel, masks, gloves and screens.  

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have also had to cancel planned summer fundraisers which would have contributed to:-

1. Funding external facilitators to provide training and support to our members, such as art and music therapists and creative writing teachers;

2. Funding transportation and days out for our members, which will help them to transition out of social isolation; and 

3. Purchasing materials for our Mens Shed

We appreciate that these are difficult times for some, but every donation, big or small makes an impact and is greatly appreciated!  We are also happy for people to use this challenge as an opportunity to improve their physical and mental health, be part of something positive and enjoy the out doors.
