Clare Students Raise Mental Health Awareness and Funds for GROW

St. Joseph’s Secondary School in Tulla, Co. Clare celebrated Mental Health Awareness Week by running a series of events and raising some €1,000 for GROW Mid West.

All of the events highlighted different ways to promote positive mental health in young people and included mindfulness workshops, mentoring programmes, pay-it-forward campaigns, the ‘sound effect’, various talks and guest speakers.

On one day, staff and students all wore pink and held a coffee morning for the whole school where each year group came together for a cup of tea and a chat. The idea behind this was to highlight the importance of taking time to sit with friends, relax and chat.

The Students’ Council were the driving force behind this campaign, raising €1,000 for GROW’s Mid West region.

A huge thank you to all involved.
