About the Organisation

Since its inception, in response to emerging needs, Inspire has developed Inspire Mental Health Support services in towns throughout Northern Ireland. Inspire now has fourteen Day Support Centres with approximately 1,000 members attending regularly. Over the years, Inspire has continued to develop innovative additional services in response to the emerging needs of its service users. Through listening attentively to what our service users need, Inspire has been able to develop three Support services with around 100 members, 10 twenty four hour Supported Housing Schemes with 100 residents, 9 non twenty four hour Supported Housing Schemes with approximately 90 residents as well as three Floating Support Schemes which provide support to 35 people. Alongside these schemes Inspire Mental Health Services have also developed four Advocacy schemes which provided support to over 5,500 last year.

While continuing to develop services to support those with experience of mental illness, research shows that mental health is not achieved simply by treating mental illness, but also by promoting positive mental wellbeing.
