About Solas Drop In Centre
Solas Drop-in Centre was established in 2001 as a response to the needs of Monaghan people who, on discharge from the mental health services, identified social exclusion as being a major barrier.
Solas is user run user led and provides those with mental health problems with a social outlet.
In this approach recovery is seen as a personal journey rather than a set outcome, and one that may involve developing a secure base and sense of self, supportive relationships, empowerment, social inclusion and coping skills.
The vision for Solas is to provide a listening ear and peer support with the emphasis on recovery. Our objective has been achieved and to date we have won many awards, such as being described as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ by the Mental Health Commission.
Volunteers are required to assist with the Solas Bucket Collection in Monaghan Town on Friday 30th August and help raise vital funds for our service.
Volunteers will each collect for 2 hours between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm at various locations around the centre of Monaghan Town. The locations include outside the courthouse, the back entrance of Monaghan Shopping Centre and the front and back of Flemings Super Valu.
