About the Map of Mental Health Supports, Services and Training Programmes
The National Youth Council of Ireland is delighted to present this map which provides an overview of mental health and suicide prevention supports, services and training programmes that are available across the country, locally and nationally. The map is particularly focused on those that will build the capacity of the youth work sector to support youth mental health.
With this information it is hoped that youth organisations will further explore what is available to them in their area and will create links with national organisations where relevant.
Purpose of the Map
1. To inform the Youth Work Sector of a selection of the supports, services and training programmes that they can access nationally and locally to support them in their work with youth mental health.
2. To encourage youth organisations to engage with services that would support their mental health work if they are not already doing so.
3. To share the information with relevant policy makers.
