A need had been identified within the field of mental health and well being, to bring mental health organisations and support groups together with community and voluntary groups in the South Tipperary Area. To achieve this we are hoping to create a network of organisations, South Tipperary Action Network – STAN.
STAN is being formed with a view to organising networking meetings so that we can collaboratively improve the lives of all those effected by Mental health issues – which is all of us.
STAN will be a network of mental health service providers established to provide networking and sharing opportunities for people and organisation working in the mental health area in South Tipperary. Currently there is a STAN Steering Group in place to help establish STAN with membership from Service Users, Mental Health Ireland, Grow, Community & Voluntary Forum, County Council & HSE Mental Health & Community Development Services.
