Bealach Nua The New Way
Bealach Nua which in Irish means New Way, is the suitably titled name of an innovative service which has been in operation since 2015, having assisted over 400 people it is currently co managed by Mental Health Ireland and the Mayo Mental Health Service. The idea was developed after Dr. Grainne Fadden held a Trialog workshop where family members discussed and reinforced the need for a family focused service putting the needs of the whole family first. It is seen as an alternative vision more aligned with empowering recovery, based around having a common lived experience. It is aptly titled with the intention of signifying a change in how we view Recovery in Mental Health, by doing it a new way.
