Kerry Mental Health Association and Kerry County GAA have teamed up for a countywide mental health awareness campaign. The campaign will have a two pronged approach: involving the deployment of mental health awareness signs and a series of talks throughout the county.
The signs, which highlight the importance of one’s mental health, will be placed permanently in areas of high visibility at all GAA facilities throughout Kerry. The talks will have two dimensions. The first dimension will deal with such topics as positive mental health, building resilience and coping. The second dimension will deal with how one might identify someone at risk of self harm or suicide and how best to deal with the situation. The talks will be organised through the GAA.
The campaign will be launched officially on Wednesday 10th October, World Mental Health Day, at Fitzgerald Stadium Killarney at 11.3O amdata-num-posts="2" data-width="470">
