Cumasú – The Wellness Bus has its official launch in Bantry on 27 May 2013. Cumasú, through its mobile unit, aims to provide physical, mental and social well-being services for the West Cork community through initiatives rooted in recovery and social inclusion. 

The project is led by the HSE South’s West Cork Mental Health Services in partnership with the National Learning Network, RehabCare, West Cork Development Partnership and service user groups. Cumasú is part of a Genio Trust funded initiative which was established to support innovative projects that positively impact on the lives of people in Ireland who are marginalised in society.
