Mental Health Engagement is a part of the Health Service Executive and Cluain Mhuire Mental Health Services. This is a service provided by people with lived experience (either as a service user or a family member, carer, or supporter).

Area Leads for Mental Health Engagement connect, meet with, talk to, and learn from people who use mental health services and their supporters. The aim of Mental Health Engagement is to offer a meaningful way for our community to shape the design, delivery, and evaluation of services.

Area Leads for Mental Health Engagement seek to understand what the experience of using mental health services is like for people in Ireland to then take concrete, feasible, and practical recommendations to Health Service Executive and Cluain Mhuire management to bring about real-world improvements to how services are provided.

Meaningful Mental Health Engagement is a respectful, dignified and equitable process. It uses the perspectives of service users and their family members, carers, and supporters to make mental health services better.
