Mojo is an evidence based mental health and wellbeing  programme for men, 18  years or older who are motivated to make changes in their lives. Mojo is an interagency programme funded by the National Office for Suicide Prevention (NOSP), and supported by local agencies to provide a coordinated response to men who are in ‘distress’ or those who are  affected by employment related issues for a variety of reasons including: a lack of availability of jobs in their related fields, poor physical or mental health and providing care to a family member.

The training takes place over a 12 week period, Wednesday’s 10-1pm and Thursday’s 10-2pm in Offaly Local Development Company, Millennium House, Main Street, Tullamore, Co Offaly. The training is free and lunch is provided. A man’s benefits will not be affected while participating on the course.

The group training programme combines a unique mix of mental health, adult guidance, physical fitness and social networking methodologies that afford men the opportunity to explore the following: how to be and stay well, barriers to achieving their goals and desires and how to plan for their future. In addition to the group work each man will have two 1:1 sessions with a life planner. The physical element of the programme is conducted by Offaly Sports Partnership.

The intended outcome is that men create a more positive future for themselves and their families. Through the programme, participants are supported to reflect on past experiences and explore current options in order to develop a plan that supports them to have their ‘Mojo’ intact.
