Three weeks of mental health awareness events begins in Carlow today

The annual Mensana Fest is underway today

It’s all about positive mental health in Carlow as Mensana Fest begins.

The annual festival has now been extended from two weeks to three this year – running until the 27th of this month.

There are hundreds of events taking place around the county, including peaceful pilates, a musical evening for young people, and talks on exploring addictions.

Speaking to KCLR, one of those involved, Rita Kelly says it’s all about teaching people how to mentally process different life events before they become problems.
