Sinead’s voice’s of hope concert included a lot of talented young people who wanted to be involved and again send a strong message of support and hope to fellow young people going through mental health issues. Ms Black is passionate about promoting mental health and reducing the stigma around it.
I am both lucky and grateful to have a small platform to voice my positive point from a not so positive time in my life. however I would like you to take a minute to strongly think about your platform. Are you using your influence to the best of your ability? Referrals for counselling services for children as young as 5 years old right up to adolescents are heavily increasing in our county and I feel that we as a community could be doing something about that. This time of year can be difficult for anyone suffering with their mental health and I would just like you to consider what could you do to reduce the increase in mental health concerns in your area. Especially to all teachers and parents in the Donegal region as you have a strong influence on our youth. Please educate yourself and indeed your children and pupils around mental health signs, mindfulness and techniques and lastly services which are available.
