Dil Wickremasinghe

Dil (pronouns: she/her) has a longstanding passion and interest in social justice and mental health. Since her arrival in Ireland she has been an activist, campaigner, journalist and broadcaster. Her interest in mental health began when she experienced mental health difficulties in 2006 and reached out for support. She experienced first-hand how the services in Ireland lacked awareness in the importance of creating an inclusive therapeutic space.

Along with Anne Marie, Dil Co-Founded Insight Matters in 2011 with the view to provide inclusive, accessible and affordable mental health support.

In 2014 she was honoured with the Frederick Douglas Award as part of the Lord Mayor’s Awards for her outstanding contribution to Dublin civic life.

In 2015 along with 9 other inspiring women Dil was given the Irish Tatler Woman of the Year Award for her work as a Marriage Equality campaigner.

From 2007 to 2017 Dil presented the award winning weekly radio programme called Global Village on Newstalk 106-108FM, every Saturday evening from 7-9pm which regularly discussed issues related to social justice, mental health and personal well-being.

After taking a year out to reflect on her life’s purpose Dil has returned to college to train as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist. She is currently attending the B.A. Counselling & Psychotherapy in Dublin Business College.
