The Mental Health Trialogue Network

Mental health is your business,

regardless of their background and experience


The Mental Health Trialogue Ireland (MHTNI) is an exciting community development initiative in Irish mental health.

The aim of this Network is to empower communities in Ireland to become proactive in communicating about mental health through a powerful open dialogue and participatory process called ‘Trialogue’.

In the past mental health was often seen as the domain of service providers, carers and the people who used the mental health service. However, within communities there is a huge diversity of knowledge and experience that can vbe used to transform our services.
