This report describes the evaluation of the MindOut programme that was implemented in
Youthreach Centres in the HSE West (Galway, Mayo and Roscommon). The MindOut
programme was originally developed as a resource to promote mental health in Irish
secondary schools. Since then it has been adapted to suit the out-of-school setting. The
programme aims to provide an opportunity for trainees in Youthreach Centres to develop
an awareness of mental health issues and to acquire skills in relation to dealing with
stress, emotions, relationships and being a support to others.
