What is PSYCHED?

PSYCHED is an initiative of Cork Healthy Cities & Counties. This collaboration comprises of the Health Services Executive (Health Promotion and Improvement, Mental Health Psychology Service in Cork) Cork City Council, Cork County Council University College Cork and community workplace partners. We want workplaces to get PSYCHED about mental health and wellbeing! We invite workplaces to get involved by sharing good practice, ideas and workplace initiatives that support the mental wellbeing of their staff.

 

Our goal:

To promote better mental health in workplaces across Cork city, an initiative which we hope will result in more understanding and reduced stigma towards mental illness in our wider community.
