Healthy Head Workshops
The IWA Dublin youth service team has recently developed a new mental health awareness workshop and we currently rolling it out across IWA young adult settings in Leinster. The workshop, ‘Healthy Heads’, hopes to break the down the stigma around mental health by discussing common issues that affect young people. The workshop utilises lots of interaction, videos and games to approach a topic that can be initially difficult to openly talk about. Dave Barry (IWA Youth Worker) and Rachel Creevey (IWA Youth Support Intern) have delivered the workshop twice over the last two weeks to 20+ IWA young adult members. The feedback has been very good so far and we’re looking forward to delivering this to even more IWA groups over the coming months. The workshop lasts about 2.5 hours and literally flies by. If you’d like to find out more about this and whether we can deliver this in your area, you can contact Dave Barry at 087 050 6946 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
