Care professionals experience double the levels of mental health challenges than other individuals, the highest levels of aggression in the workplace and half of all injuries at work in Ireland. At CNI, we believe that collectively we can improve supports and prioritize the physical, mental & emotional well being of the care professionals.
CNI is a Social Enterprise created by Ronah Corcoran, Social Care Worker & Holistic Therapist.
In 2018, Ronah noticed an increase in mental health struggles amongst her peers in the Care Sector. Soon after, she herself struggled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after an incident at work. She decided to carry out research, avail of business supports and link with mental health experts to explore ways to improve supports for care professionals in distress in Ireland.
In 2019, Carers Network Ireland was incorporated and tested several pilot initiatives after completing two social enterprise programs with Social Entrepreneurs Ireland & BNest Limerick.
In 2020, CNI put a team of experts and advisors in place and is delighted to announce the launch of Irelands' first Support Service for Care Professionals. Thank you to family, co- care workers and affiliated organisations in Ireland & abroad for all your encouragement, advice and support over the past two years.
