Head Up is an initiative that aims to improve and foster positive mental health through hiking excursions around Mayo.
Head Up stated: "In light of Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions, mental health is suffering. Services such as this are now more than ever a vital necessity.
"Getting 'outdoors and active' is a well-worn solution, however, with Head Up the aim is to take this a little further by engaging in a more challenging and rewarding outdoor experience.
"We are very fortunate in Mayo to have some fantastic countryside to explore on our doorstep. This service is aimed at individuals that may be struggling with mental health difficulties but are uncomfortable approaching more clinical services.
"It is also open to people who would just like to improve their mental health by meeting new people and exploring hiking trails around Mayo. If you are interested please email us on [email protected]."
