Blanchardstown Centre proudly supports World Mental Health Month.
Over the past 2 years over €20,000 has been raised for Mental Health Ireland.
Blanchardstown Centre invited customers to a family fun event last weekend in aid of Mental Health Ireland. The event celebrated Mental Health awareness month with representatives on hand to chat to customers about how to take care of their mental health. We celebrated wellbeing with feel good family entertainment and retail therapy with stores offering discounts all weekend. All funds raised will help the charity provide free training and resources for community groups, educational scholarships for people with experience of mental health challenges, support volunteers around the country, and roll out national campaigns aimed at fighting stigma and raising awareness.
