Bloomfield was established over 200 years ago when a group of Quakers met to consider the possibility of providing a home for those “afflicted with disorders of the mind”. Three years later, in 1810, a property was purchased in Donnybrook and Bloomfield opened its doors in 1812. In 2005, Bloomfield Health Services relocated to the new, state-of-the-art facility that is its current home in Rathfarnham.
At Bloomfield, our vision is that every person with mental health needs will live as an active member of our community and society and will be enabled to live life to the fullest.
Our mission is to be a leader in the development of responsive, innovative, and excellent services for people with mental health needs. We will do this by identifying and addressing unmet needs in mental health care alongside our key partners, and by continually improving quality in mental health care through education, research, and advocacy.
Our values guide us in all that we do:
- We Care for and about our people.
- We are just and we strive for Justice.
- We deliver Quality in all that we do.
- We Enable people to live their fullest life.
