Dublin Mental Health Talks -19th & 20th January 2018

Here you will find details of my up-coming Dublin Mental Health Talks on 19th & 20th January 2018.

Mental Health is high on the agenda in Ireland. Many people are struggling to cope with a mental health issue themselves or in their own family. Others wonder how they can practically help a friend or relative with a mental health issue.  After the busyness and stress at Christmas many find it difficult to feel positive about the year ahead in the grey days of January.

There seem to be so many questions and so few answers!

Dublin Mental Health Talks – 19th & 20th January 2018

Dr Stephen Critchlow, a retired psychiatrist, over the last several years has been leading talks on mental health in many places in the UK and Ireland and will be holding a series of three talks in Dun Laoghaire on 19th and 20th January 2018. He will talk on Anxiety and Stress Management, Understanding Addictions, and What is Depression and what Treatments are available?

Dublin Mental Health Talks

The talks are being held in THE KINGSTOWN SUITE, ROYAL MARINE HOTEL DUN LAOGHAIRE, starting at 7-30 on the Friday evening and 9-00 (for 9-30) on the Saturday morning on 19th and 20th January.

Dublin Mental Health Talks

Each talk will be in two parts. The first part gives a clear description of the topic with practical pointers as to how we can help ourselves or others. Then there is  time for questions followed by a short break. In the second part there is a  short, optional spiritual reflection on the topic being discussed. Many have found these talks very helpful and they are suitable for carers, sufferers, professionals and all those interested in mental health. The book, Mindful of the Light-practical help and Spiritual hope for Mental Health is a further useful resource on these  topics. Entry is free although donations are welcome! So plan to come to these Dublin Mental Health Talks on 19th & 20th January 2018.
