Action Mental Health

The John Wilson Memorial Trust's partnership with Action Mental Health is making a real difference.

Founded in 1963, Action Mental Health (AMH) is a local charity which works to enhance the quality of life and the employability of people with mental health needs or a learning disability in Northern Ireland.

The charity operates in 12 locations across Northern Ireland and delivers services and projects in all communities. The charity provides its clients with many opportunities, encouraging them to adopt healthier lifestyles and to widen their social networks. It also provides them with the skills to build a better future, set personal goals, develop coping skills, re-engage with society and become more employable.

The John Wilson Memorial Trust funded two of Action Mental Health's main projects - AMH New Horizons and AMH MensSana.

AMH New Horizons offers a wide variety of activities aimed at adults who wish to improve their skills and gain qualifications, enhancing their quality of life and prospects of accessing employment, while the AMH MensSana project aims to provide tailored activities to support positive mental health and emotional wellbeing for people of all ages.

Colin Loughran, AMH Service Manager, commented: "Everyone in AMH would like to thank Ulster Carpets and the Trustees of the John Wilson Memorial Trust for their kind generosity and support of our work. The funding will be used to resource our training suites at Tannaghmore Gardens on the outskirts of Lurgan with modern IT equipment and enable essential poly tunnel repairs to be carried out in addition to refurbishment of the glass house ventilation system."

The Trust also pledged significant funding to AMH MensSana, which secured a full time staff post over 2013-2015 and enabled planned and necessary work to continue.
