Let’s Talk About: Young People & Mental Health event
A event by PIPS Hope & Support, Aware NI, and the Royal College of Psychiatrists, held in the Canal Court Hotel on Monday 21st November.
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Deputy Chairperson, Aoife Finnegan introduced the event and spoke highly of the contributions of the organising charities and shared some of her own experience working with both in the community.
Dr. Hayley Bowes of the Royal College of Psychiatrists spoke about the challenges young people face, and the issues that arise as a result. Dr. Bowes also shared some wonderful insight into helpful methods of care and recovery for young people facing mental health challenges.
The room then welcomed Jordan, a young male who shared his lived-experience and his path to recovery.
A massive thank you to Caroline, Rhonda, and the rest of the team at AWARE NI for their collaboration, as well as to Jordan, Dr. Hayley Bowes, and Aoife Finnegan for their contributions to the evening, and to the Canal Court Hotel and staff for their kind hospitality.
