About the Women’s Mental Health Network : St Patrick's Mental Health Services and the National Women’s Council of Ireland have come together to develop a Women’s Mental Health Network for people and organisations with a committed interest in women’s mental health. The network aims to provide a forum for information-sharing and networking among interested parties, and to advance interdisciplinary and multi-agency collaboration to progress shared aims and goals in the promotion of women’s mental health.
About the NWCI ‘Out of Silence- women’s mental health in their own words’ report: In 2017/8, NWCI undertook a programme of conversations with groups of women across the country, centring women’s understanding of mental health – the things that keep women well, the social and community networks that support them and the services they turn to in times of difficulty. This report seeks to translate women’s insights into key recommendations for mental health services which could better meet women’s needs.
