Playwright Holds Focus Groups in GROW’s Limerick Offices

Actress and playwright Joanne Ryan is conducting mental research in the form of focus groups at GROW’s Limerick offices as part of an upcoming work. 

‘In Two Minds’ is a new piece of theatre currently being developed by Joanne which looks at the realities of living with bipolar disorder and its effects on relationships.

As part of her research, Joanne is conducting a series of informal and confidential focus groups in GROW’s offices at 33 Henry Street, Limerick.

These sessions are not intended to be a form of therapy.

Participants will be provided with information about a range of relevant free and low cost services and supports that are currently available to those affected by bipolar disorder in the Limerick area.

The following research sessions will take place: 

  • Session for anyone who has a close family member who identifies with bipolar disorder will be held on Saturday 3rd November from 11am to 1pm and on Tuesday 6th November from 6 to 8pm
  • Sessions for anyone who identifies themselves with bipolar disorder will be held on Friday 9th November, 6 to 8pm and Saturday 10th November from 11am to 1pm
