Events, competitions and more! This will be a fun-filled day out for everyone in the family.

The Limerick Mental Health Association (LMHA) is running its first-ever Limerick Mental Health Day on Sunday, September 4.


The LMHA family day will take place in Limerick Milk Market from 3-6 pm. This free event is suitable for people of all ages and is an ideal family day out as there is something for everyone.

There are a variety of events set to talk place, ranging from mental health talks to art competitions. This is all in the name of bringing the community together and promoting positive mental health. 

The LMHA family day will kick off at 3pm with a celebrity talk on mental health featuring Joy Neville and Ciarán Carey. The LMHA are advising people to arrive early as the talk is expected to attract a large crowd.

This will be followed by the “Get Your Music Out” music competition at 3.30pm. If you are someone that loves music, then this is the event for you! 

The 4.30pm Dog Show will no doubt be hilarious and a perfect way to spend your Sunday evening.  Families are encouraged to attend.

Throughout the day, a photography competition will be on display with judges giving their results between 5.30 and 6pm. Winning photos will be displayed on the windows of Bank of Ireland’s city centre branch for Mental Health Week 2022. 

A children’s art competition open to primary school children in the Limerick region up until August 26 will also be judged on the day. Prizes for all competitions will be presented at the family day.

Set up in 2002 by a group of community leaders, Limerick Mental Health Association is based in the heart of Limerick City. LMHA helps people who are struggling to cope, are under the care of Mental Health services or are experiencing loneliness or isolation.

The association provides those in need with friendship, peer support, classes, activities, and wellness programmes. It is a safe place for those who struggle with their mental health.
