SERVICE ACHIEVEMENTS: Nua’s Mental Health Community Residence - Teach Folláine is 1 year old this month!!

Nua’s Mental Health Community Residence - Teach Folláine is 1 year old this month!!

This month marks our Mental Health Community Residence - Teach Folláine's first full year in operation. During this time, the Centre has gone from strength to strength and is now home to a number of residents, all of whom are making fantastic progress in achieving their goals and outcomes on a daily basis.

To mark our 1-year Anniversary, staff and residents decided to participate in a 'Shave or Dye' charity event, in an effort to raise much needed funds and awareness for Mental Health Ireland. The total raised during the event was €3,442, which was an incredible achievement by everyone. Rebecca Hanlon, Centre Manager added, “I am extremely proud of the residents and staff and I am so thankful to everyone who got involved on the day, not to mention how amazing everyone looks!! Thank you to everyone who participated and donated, we are extremely grateful!”

Nua Healthcare opened its Mental Health Community Residence in Co Kildare in June 2019. The Centre, Teach Folláine, which means ‘Place of Wellbeing’, enables Nua to deliver high quality care and support to individuals with varied mental health conditions and associated needs. In doing so, Nua Healthcare is enhancing the standards of excellence in care for people with mental health needs.

As well as developing its mental health services, Nua Healthcare continues to develop its high-quality Residential Services for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. In so doing, jobs are created in local communities across Ireland.

A very well done to all who participated in the ‘Shave or Dye’ charity event and a sincere thank you to everyone who donated to such a worthy cause.
