HSE Galway Community Cafe

Who We Are

Galway Community Café is a free out-of-hours adult mental health service designed and run by people with lived experience of mental health challenges, and / or supporting those with lived experience. The service is currently operating on a appointment only basis, and has essential service status from the HSE during level 5 restrictions. The service is funded through the service reform fund, the HSE and Mental Health Ireland.

What We Do

To embody the peer support ethos of mutuality in peer support – the power of being able to tell your story and hear others, and the healing potential within these naturally occurring therapeutic relationships. Our staff understand mental health difficulties in a trauma informed approach and support people to be the best version of themselves. To demonstrate the principles of co-production – the strength of shared power and decision-making, and the empowerment of the voices of Experts by Experience and staff. We use person-centred, non-judgmental, solution-focused and asset-based approaches to deliver better mental health support experiences. Our trained staff realise distress is a natural response to trauma, to recognise the effects of trauma and respond in a spirit of compassion with the aim to prevent re-traumatisation.

How We Do It

The café provides a safe, non-judgemental place for individuals to come and have a chat with a trained member of staff. Our team have lived experience of using mental health services and can provide peer support or signposting for customers experiencing emotional distress. Due to Covid-19 all classes and currently suspended.

Who We Serve

We provide a safe and understanding environment for people going through mental health difficulties.

Choosing A Strong Password

Chains of words, make passwords easy to remember and harder to crack.

 

To create a password that meets our strength requirements, it’s recommended to use a mix of at least three random words along with a number (not a birthday or 123 etc., just random) and one or more symbols and capitals, but don't capitalize the first letters of the words, e.g.:

  • mower-speaK5shadow
  • table?taPe748goNe.

This password style might not be very common, and it will be much more difficult for computers/bots to crack. It also allows for your passwords to be memorized more easily. Though a password vault may help with that.
