PROMOTING SOCIAL CONNECTEDNESS

WHAT WE Do

Education, Training & Best Practice Guidance 

The National Family Resource Mental Health Promotion Project (FRC MHPP) is a sub-project of the National Forum of Family Resource Centres. The FRC National Forum represents 121 Family Resource Centres around the country and has worked consistently over the last 20 years to promote and support the needs of Families and Communities in the most disadvantaged areas of our country.

 

What we do:  The FRC MHPP provides free education, training and best practice guidance around suicide prevention code of practice training, wellness, recovery action planning, self-care and positive mental health promotion to the management, staff, and volunteers of 121 Family Resource Centres across Ireland. 

  

Additionally, we are the lead and support organisation for 6 Health and Wellbeing Community Referral Sites in Cork and Kerry. This is funded by the HSE in partnership with Cork/Kerry HSE Health & Wellbeing. Because of the success of our Link Workers along with the FRC MHPP administrative effectiveness of this project, this area of our work is due to expand over the course of 2022. 

Further to this, we support other national organisations across Ireland, to promote mental health and wellbeing resources and mental health and wellbeing, national awareness campaigns.
