HomeOur Impact › Promoting Healthy Living

As an movement the YMCA has long championed the notion of physical, mental and spiritual well-being as central to its ethos.

Health has been consistently identified by local YMCAs over its history and as a key issue for young people and has remained so over the course of YMCAs work in Ireland. The YMCA ethos of spirit, mind and body compels us to drive forward health and fitness programmes as well as programmes that attend to mental health and spiritual health, such as our Counselling, Advocacy and Chaplaincy Programmes.
