‘MyMind Mental Health’ is a major organization in Ireland that is trying to combat the stigma attached to mental health and open up access to services.
Krystian Fikert is the founder and CEO of the organization. Fikert set up the company in 2006 in response to Ireland’s complicated mental health system. MyMind provides affordable and accessible mental health services within the community, which aims to bypass the need for clinical referral, long waiting lists and high cost services.
MyMind is a non-profit social enterprise, with profits made from fee-paying clients, which are used to subsidize those clients who cannot afford access to certain services.
Fikert says, “In MyMind, I have developed a fantastic model which can help many people in Ireland.”
“The Model is the most important starting point. As an experienced psychologist and psychotherapist, I ensure that all services are conducted to the highest standard.”
The startup company is thriving and now employees more than 60 staff, as founder and CEO Fikert has managed the growth and development of the non profit.
Why should the average young person be concerned about mental illness and what should they know about mental health?
