The Havin’ a Laugh Charity was established in 2013 to promote positive mental health through life-enhancing activities. It operates primarily in Co. Sligo and is steadily spreading throughout the counties of the Northwest of Ireland.
The charity has three primary areas of operation
– Providing activity vouchers directly to people in mental health recovery.
– Creating public events that showcase the life-enhancing activities available in our locality
– Tackling the stigma associated with the term ‘mental health’ through positive marketing.
Blaithin Sweeney is one of the founding members of the Havin’ a Laugh Charity.
‘What if the term ‘mental health’ evoked images of mischievousness and joy, it’s time to start changing perceptions’.
