In the last term of school, 6th year students participated in our Wellbeing Programme. They received talks from various organisations that promote positive mental health and self-care.
On Tuesday 16th May 2017, students met with a volunteer from NiteLine, which is a listening, support and information service run by and for a number of affiliated third level colleges & universities. They were encouraged to make use of this support service next September if they ever feel like the need to talk to someone who will listen, accept and understand without judging.
On Thursday 18th May 2017, 6S received a presentation from Bodywhys, a national voluntary organisation supporting people affected by eating disorders. Students received information on various eating disorders and the supports available for those affected. They were informed of the work to advocate for the provision of better treatment services for people with eating disorders in Ireland.
It is our hope that students will avail of the appropriate professional support services if they are ever in need.
