Aware and Aware NI will hold a joint talk in Letterkenny on September 13 – the mental health organisations announced.
The talk will be held in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Letterkenny, where refreshments will be served from 6.30pm before the two-hour‘Let’s Talk About It…A Conversation About Depression’ will commence from 7-9pm with keynote speaker, Dr Patrick McKeon.
Director of Services at Aware, Brid O’Meara, said the issue of depression was affecting one in every ten people across Ireland.
She said: “It impacts on our thoughts, feelings, energy, sleep and self-esteem. Depression can be a very isolating condition but with the appropriate supports, recovery is possible.
“We would urge anyone who is impacted by depression, whether directly themselves or indirectly as a loved one, to consider attending this event and availing of the opportunity to access information, support and importantly, understanding from those who are going through similar experiences.”
The event will also provide key services available to those suffering from depression and bipolar disorder – with an Aware service user providing a personal perspective on their experience of depression.Tags:
