"Solas Donegal is fresh and refreshing!"

About: Donegal Mental Health Services Solas Donegal

(as a service user),

Solas is one of the best mental health projects in the world dar liomsa/in my opinion.

Refreshing and fresh in equal measures, all that lovely ocean air. Good staff with a great attitude, I enjoyed my time with the project. And the walks, obviously some of the best in Europe.

I did find however that some of the facilitators that were brought in were less than inspiring, some were alright though.

Overall Solas is an absolutely amazing mental health recovery project. Thanks to everybody who helped me there xx.

Dear one oneone,

Many thanks for taking the time to post your feedback regarding your time in Solas Donegal. It is very heartening for the team to hear such positive words and as you have acknowledged we are blessed in Donegal with such beautiful green spaces in which to facilitate the service.

With regards to your experience regarding outside facilitators this is difficult for me to comment on as this has not been a practice in Solas for some years, we currently have a small team that have been recruited specifically to work within Solas and we find that this nurtures consistent therapeutic relationships within our model of partnership.

Once again thank you for your positive words and I hope that you are still enjoying all the benefits that walking has for our mental health,
