Promoting positive mental health is a major part of the advocacy work of St Patrick’s Mental Health Services. Over the last number of years we have run a number of awareness raising initiatives the most successful of which has been our Walk in My Shoes Campaign.
As part of this campaign we are running a series of mental health fairs across the country in 2016. Our objective is to educate and inform the public about mental health with a particular focus on wellness. We held our first fair in Cork on 6th February, followed by a second Fair in Dublin on May 21st. Our third and final Fair of 2016 will be held in the Galway Bay Hotel on Saturday October 22nd from 11am-4pm.
The Fair will host a number of exhibitors from local and national service providers, a programme of workshops in mindfulness, yoga, laughter yoga, zumba and music, and a range of talks from mental health experts and advocates scheduled between 2-3pm.
