Launching the Integrated community care pathway for Dual Diagnosis along with a supportive services map on the 20th July.

We are delighted to announce that we will be launching the Integrated community care pathway for Dual Diagnosis along with a supportive services map on the 20th July. The North East Inner City has great potential to become a beacon of hope as a trauma informed community that promotes and celebrates recovery.  We would like to thank the community for their support throughout the project and raise awareness of recovery by celebrating the launch in the local Community space that is D-Light Studios. Join us for conversation with Trauma experts Dr Liam MacGabhann and Dr Sharon Lambert, music from local talent and rising musician Ciarán Moran with local guests on the day.

The pathway and map have been co-created by the community for the community through meaningful engagement including forums,workshops and core group meetings over the last nine months.

The goal of the pathway and map is to provide

– A visual resource on what a pathway for support and recovery might look like. Promoting integrated ways of working that encourage interagency collaboration in supporting an individual and/or families person centred journey of recovery

– A user-friendly resource map for finding information about local community services that can support people through all stages when experiencing issues regarding mental health and substance use. Information will include service details, specific contacts, opening hours, what supports services offer, how to refer etc

Menopause and Mental Health course feedback.

“Can I say just how much I enjoyed the past four weeks on our Mental Health and Menopause course.  It was an incredible learning journey not only with the superb facilitators but also the fabulous ladies who participated.  In spite of the course finishing yesterday, we will continue our journeys through our second springs in our new WhatsApp group”.


This came into our in box this morning, the evaluation still has to go out but lovely to see how the course went on it’s first running. Congratulations to Deborah, Kate, Paula and Siobhan who affiliated the group.
