Free workshop to help people manage their mental health

Charleville Park Hotel – March 28th

‘”Wellness Workshop” – tackles mental health issues in the community

On 28th March   2011; Suicide or Survive (SOS), a charitable organisation that provides services and supports aimed at suicide prevention in Ireland, is running a free support workshop aimed at raising awareness of mental health issues and supporting those affected.  Places at the “Wellness Workshop” are normally €200 per delegate but  they are being offered free of charge thanks to the support of Slí Eile, an organisation that provides housing and support services for people caught up in the revolving door of the psychiatric system.  The Vodafone Ireland Foundation have also funded the programme.  The “Wellness Workshop” will take place on 28th March at the The Charleville Park Hotel.

Caroline McGuigan, CEO, SOS said, “Being able to offer help and support to people in Charleville area with the “Wellness Workshop” will help SOS to make a real difference.  It will also help to raise awareness of mental health issues.  The difficult economic climate we are living in has put enormous pressure on everyone and unfortunately some people find it more difficult to cope than others.  The symptoms of stress-related pressure can manifest themselves in both people’s personal lives and in the workplace.  The “Wellness Workshop” will focus on both aspects. We are delighted with the support of Slí Eile and Vodafone Ireland Foundation in bringing this programme to Charleville”.

The ‘Wellness Workshops’ were developed by SOS drawing on the organisation’s unique experience and expertise in the corporate, community and voluntary sectors.  Feedback from recent events have been extremely positive with over 90% of attendees describing the workshop as very good or excellent.  One attendee said “The presenters were all helpful in their own way – a very good team of open communicators – a mix of calming, informative, animated and knowledgeable people who work together very well.  I found the whole session excellent”.

The “Wellness Workshop” is free to attend and anyone interested in joining the event in Charleville  should book their place by contacting Louise at SOS – 1890 577 577 or  visit
