Mental Health Associations

Currently, there are 4 Local Mental Health Associations (MHAs) operating in the Sligo/Leitrim area.

MHAs are engaged in a range of activities and services which promote positive mental health and support those managing a mental illness. All members of local MHA’s work on a voluntary basis in their communities. MHAs in the area are Sligo MHA, Easkey MHA, Breffni MHA, and Manorhamilton MHA.

All Associations are affiliated to Mental Health Ireland but are also autonomous in their workings. General activities often include:

  • Befriending
  • Social Housing
  • Mental Health Promotion
  • Schools Projects
