The HSE West Health Promotion Service, in association with Westport Family and Community Resource Centre and the Westport Men’s Group, is organising a seminar called Managing your Mental Health on Monday May 25 at 7.30pm in the Wyatt Hotel in Westport.
The seminar, which is free of charge, will examine the best ways to look after your mental health and how to cope with life’s problems. Mental health is something we all have and we should look after it in the same way as our physical health.
The seminar speakers include Dr Terry Lynch, author of Beyond Prozac, who will talk about his experience as a GP and how he changed his general practice to give people the space to be able to work through their personal problems with his support. Jutta Kirrkamm from the Irish Advocacy Network will focus specifically on recovery approaches that will help people with emotional problems to lead a normal life whilst taking medication. Dr Ollie Whyte will give a GP’s perspective on dealing with issues in relation to mental health.
All are welcome. For more information call Eoghan Murphy, Westport Family and Community Resource Centre on 098 24419.
