There’s plenty of support & ideas of ways to mark World Mental Health Day in Carlow & Kilkenny

Kilkeny's Craic'd, Carlow's Mensana & the HSE have compiled lots of information for you

The last few months have been tough on us all, but have you stopped to take some time out to focus on your mental health?

In the run up to World Mental Health Day (Saturday, 10th October) you’re being offered chances to take that time out you may just need.  You’re also being reminded of the various supports & services that are available locally.

Our reporter Shauna McHugh’s been visiting Recovery College South East in Kilkenny – listen back to that via here And stay tuned for coverage of various events & supports.

Kilkenny’s annual ‘Craic’d – Letting the Light In’ runs from October 8th to 11th – keep up to date with them via the Facebook page of the same name & see below their booklet:
