Join the Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland, Jigsaw Galway and Galway Community Circus for a youth mental health panel discussion on the practical ways we can take care of our mental wellbeing.
The event aims to respond to the themes being investigated within Galway Community Circus’ Lifeline highwire spectacle and will focus on understanding mental health, having a greater awareness of what helps and hurts our mental health, and recognising what helps and blocks us from accessing support.
