Kilcummin Mental Health Initiative invites all interested people to attend two upcoming information evenings in Kilcummin GAA clubhouse, on Friday the 11th and Friday the 18th of October at 8.30pm sharp. The events are being organised in conjunction with Jigsaw Kerry, Southwest Counselling Centre and Kilcummin GAA club and both nights will focus on how we can best look after our mental health.
Friday the 11th is a night for teenagers and young adults and will address the issues that affect the mental well-being of young people in today’s society. A club wristband will be launched by Kerry Senior player, Brendan Kealy on the night. Friday the 18th is aimed at parents of teenagers and interested adults and will focus on how parents can best identify mental health issues and outline what supports are available. Jigsaw Kerry based in Tralee works with young people and is part of a network of projects across Ireland, working with communities to better support young people’s mental health and well being. Jigsaw projects bring people and services together to give young people somewhere to turn to and someone to talk to in their community. Southwest counselling centre provides personal support to the people of Killarney and surrounding areas. All members of the public for the local community and from surrounding communities are invited to attend.
