Cúnamh was established in 1997 as a community led mental health & well being project. The organisation emerged from the opportunity created in 1994 as a result of the IRA ceasefire and subsequent political and social developments.
This created a new environment and space in which, for the first time, individuals could commence a process of reflection, exploration and community growth.
Cúnamh aspires to a community and society whose health, mental health and well-being thrives through access to personal and community development opportunities.
To provide a community-led and based service, catering for the emotional and psychological impact which the conflict has had on individual and community wellbeing, and responsive to the emergent needs of the wider community.
Cúnamh firmly believes that the process of recovering from negative emotional and psychological impacts must initially take place within a safe and empathetic environment. Cúnamh also believes that individuals and communities are entitled to support structures which respect and understand their experiences.
