John Maloney, TD, Minister for Equality, Disability and Mental Health launched a new website for young people www.letsomeoneknow.ie, aimed at improving their awareness and understanding of mental health and well being. The aim is to encourage young people to talk about their problems with family, friends, or an adult they trust.
The website www.letsomeoneknow.ie is an interactive platform that will increase young people’s awareness about mental health and wellbeing as well as providing contact details for support and advice. There are tips and quizzes about looking after yourself and your friends. The website also features a personal action diary.
