A series of five information evenings entitled ‘Gatekeepers: Community Mental Health Promotion Programme’ begin in Granard next Monday, September 16 at 7.30pm.

The talks aim to raise awareness about mental wellbeing and each evening will cover a different topic related to positive mental health.

The talks will take place on consecutive Mondays from 7.30- 9.30pm in Lus na Greine Family Resource Centre, Main Street, Granard. All talks are FREE and open to the general public. The Gatekeepers Programme is being hosted by GROW in Ireland in partnership with the HSE.

Each evening will have a guest speaker from the HSE or a voluntary organisation based in the Midlands to offer their expertise on a given topic.

The aim of the Gatekeepers Programme is to inform the general public about the topic of mental health, its role in suicide prevention & provide information about relevant support services in the area.

It is hoped that all attendees will have a better understanding of mental health and a good overall knowledge of the services in the area. No booking required. A certificate of attendance will be presented on Week 5 and there will be an additional certificate for Week 6 SafeTALK training issued by the HSE.
