The Rural Mental Health Project is a cross-border community project concerned with promoting
positive mental health and well-being in rural communities. This initiative brings together two
rural community projects, the Mind Matters project in Raphoe, Co. Donegal and the Rural
Health and Social Wellbeing Project in Draperstown, Co Londonderry/Derry, in developing a
community model of mental health promotion employing cross-border and cross-sectoral
strategies. This project, which is funded under the EU Peace and Reconciliation Programme
(Peace 2) and part-financed by the UK and Irish governments, has just completed the final
Phase 2 of its programme of work.
