Mayor of Limerick and GROW Patron Officially Open Extended GROW Offices

Posted on

The official opening will take place this Wednesday, October 11th of GROW Community Mental Health’s newly extended offices in Limerick.

The opening, which coincides with World Mental Health Week, will be performed by the Mayor of Limerick, Councillor Stephen Keary, and GROW patron and former governor of Mountjoy Prison, John Lonergan.

Getting underway at 4p.m, those in attendance at the ceremony will include GROW’s CEO Michele Kerrigan, GROW National Chairperson Rob Stephen, Regional Chairperson Tommy Kennedy, GROW Mid-West Regional Manager James Quilligan, as well as GROW staff and volunteers, representatives from the HSE, local health and community organisations among others.

The ceremony celebrates the opening of GROW’s extended offices at 33 Henry Street. GROW recently acquired a second floor of the building and now occupies both the ground and first floors. This has been made possible by the generosity of the JP McManus Benevolent Fund.

The JP McManus Benevolent Fund aims to support local community, healthcare and education initiatives, as well as non-profit organisations throughout the Mid-West region.

The extra building space has already enabled GROW to offer an additional weekly mental health support meeting, an ‘Enhancing Your Mental Health’ programme, as well as hosting HSE Service User Fora.

“Our sincere thanks and gratitude goes out to the JP McManus Benevolent Fund for their generosity and for supporting the ongoing, vital work of GROW in promoting positive mental health and wellbeing,” says James Quilligan, GROW Regional Manager.
