Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
    This description of Krystian Fikert's work was prepared when Krystian Fikert was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    In Ireland, adequate mental health care is out of reach for many who need it because public offerings are too slow and the private market is too costly. Krystian Fikert has created a new social business model of community-based mental health services, which has unleashed a movement for accessible, preventative mental health care. Krystian’s model reaches out beyond Ireland to other areas in Europe to create the structures for expansion from the very start.
