Introducing "The Dymphna Project": a nonprofit where individuals and families living in the shadows of a mental health or neurodiverse diagnosis will find a safe place to come together and share their experience, learn and grow.

The Dymphna Mission: At the heart of our mission is an unwavering dedication to supporting community members, parents, grandparents, and young people in the many realms of health and wellness. We're here to uplift, inspire, and nurture, making The Dymphna Community a place where neurodiversity and uniqueness thrives, where mental health challenges are supported and nurtured. We will do so with respect and without regard for one's ability to pay.

Named after St. Dymphna, the patron saint of those suffering from mental and nervous disorders, this nonprofit organization aims to be a guiding light for individuals and families navigating the complexities of mental health challenges. 

The Dymphna Project is brimming with excitement and a clear vision for 2024 and beyond. The primary focus of the foundation this year is to acquire a site for the Dymphna Farm, a space dedicated to servicing neurodiverse individuals, their families, and the broader community. 

The Dymphna Farm: Imagine a place where the healing power of nature meets the boundless potential of the human spirit. Dymphna Project professionals and volunteers will dedicate themselves to promoting holistic well-being, self-discovery, and lifelong learning for all of our visitors and residents. In that spirit, the Dymphna Farm will host community events, school-based farm days, adolescent wellness camps, a variety of enriching learning opportunities, parent workshops, day programs, corporate events focused on neurodiversity in the workplace and mental health retreats, wellness weekends, as well as many other activities aimed at engaging and enriching the lives of everyone who visits our vibrant community.
