Supporting Positive Mental Health

As mental health problems are increasing, it is important for us as an organisation to promote a concept of positive mental health.

We have decided to run a series of workshops on MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS in 2013 for all our volunteers in Carlow and Kilkenny. A larger population of older people are retiring earlier in their life now, and it is important for us to recognise any emerging mental health difficulties that may occur, and also challenge and reduce the stigma that surrounds mental health.

It is hoped that through participation in this programme of workshops people will be better able to identify crises in their own lives or help in any way to advise, listen and talk to others about their worries around their mental Health.

 Facilitator/ Trainer for this course is Linda Thorpe of Mental Health Ireland
