Mental Health Week 2019

In today’s’ world, 1 in 4 people will deal with mental illness in their lifetime. As Mental Health service providers, here at Highfield Healthcare, we are proud to support many individuals on their mental health journey. During Mental Health week, it is important to raise awareness about mental health and speak out in support of those experiencing difficulty. This year, we have undertaken a number of projects to do our bit.

For the second year in a row, Hot Press has teamed up with Lyons Tea and Pieta House for a special issue, which takes an in-depth look at the important issue of mental health. Here at Highfield Healthcare, we were delighted to get involved again, with Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Miriam Kennedy detailing our newest initiative in partnership with Aware Ireland and Dublin Fingal Rotary Club.
