"I feel better in myself
after talking to the counsellor"


National Conference, Oct 20th

Traveller Mental Health – Bridging the Gap through Partnership

This conference will explore some of the key issues that impact on mental health within the Traveller community and some of the considerations that need to be taken in order to effectively address the mental health needs of the Traveller community.

The organisers hope that this conference will create the opportunity  for advocates, the community, service providers and policy makers to come together to explore the key issues in relation to developing culturally inclusive mental health services that are accessible to the Traveller community in Ireland.

  • Feedback

    “As manager of the organisation, I have seen the impact since the local counselling service was set up some years now. The taboo that Travellers always had in relation to counselling is no longer there.”

    “Our clients have said that they do feel the benefit of using the service for a number of reasons. Before they did not understand counselling or what it was for, and to be able to talk to someone about their problems and issues, whether it be drug related or not, in a "safe and confidential environment" is key.”
