What we do

Founded in 1963, Action Mental Health (AMH) is a local charity that works to change the lives of those living with mental ill-health and promotes resilience and well-being to future generations.

AMH delivers services and projects across the country for all members of our communities. Our health promotion work takes place in schools, community groups, and local employers.

Our employment services assist people to remain in work as well as providing skills and sourcing opportunities for those who want to re-enter the workforce. We have specific projects for young people, older people, people living with alcohol abuse, employees, employers, people managing long-term conditions, partnership work with other mental health and disability charities as well as working within our prisons.

We provide our clients with many opportunities, encouraging them to adopt healthier lifestyles and to widen their social networks. We also provide them with the skills to build a better future, set personal goals, develop coping skills, re-engage with society and become more employable.

Gifts in Wills

One in every five adults in Northern Ireland will experience mental ill-health at some stage in their life. As well as this one in ten children aged 5 -16 suffer from a diagnosable mental health disorder, whilst half of all mental health problems start before the age of 14.

These statistics show the scale of the challenge that we, as a society, face.

By leaving a gift in your Will, you will be helping Action Mental Health to secure and grow our services for children, young people, and adults so that we can help tackle this challenge into the future.

As a local charity, we rely on the generosity of local people through fundraising, donations, and gifts in Wills.

All gifts received will be used to help us to provide services for people in Northern Ireland.
