Mental Health & Wellbeing event to be held in the Creggan area of Derry later this week
11 Jun 2018 9:31 PM
At 7.30 pm on Thursday 14th June, the Creggan Community Collective will be hosting an information session on Mental Health & Wellbeing at their premises at 33 Cromore Gardens. The event ‘Looking after you, looking after your mental health’ aims to deliver practical information on how someone can look after their mental health and to encourage people to talk about mental health to break down the stigma that surrounds it. The statistics around mental health are startling in that 1 in 4 people will develop a mental illness in the course of a year and 44 per cent of young people in the North state that they have experienced a mental health problem. The impact of mental illness and the contributing factors cannot be ignored and it is hoped that through this session people in the community will have better information on how to access services available in the city. Speakers at the event will include author and a patients campaigner Patricia Campbell, Brendan Magee an addiction Counsellor from Dublin and a Community Mental Health Worker. As well as the speakers on the night there will be a range of literature and resources available. The event begins at 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome
