Women’s Mental Health Network

The Women’s Mental Health Network (WMHN) is a network of people and organisations with a committed interest in women’s mental health issues, developed by the National Women’s Council (NWC) and St Patrick’s Mental Health Services (SPMHS).

Advocating for women’s rights to mental health

Advocating for women’s rights to mental health

The WMHN has two aims:

  • To provide a forum for information-sharing and networking
  • To advance interdisciplinary and multi-agency collaboration on women’s mental health issues.

To do this, we share information through newsletters and online updates. We also organise education and networking events hosted collaboratively by SPMHS and NWC.

The network was launched at a special event in November 2018. Since then, we have grown to over 300 members, hosted numerous events, and explored and advocated for women’s rights to mental health in the media and through awareness-raising opportunities.
