World Mental Health Day takes place each year globally on October 10th. It is a day when we celebrate our good mental health and promote the organisations that offer solutions for those that have poor mental health. In Kilkenny for the second year Lifeline are co-ordinating a week-long series of events that promote positive mental health and the organisations State, Voluntary and Community that aid those suffering with poor mental health through a series of talks by inspiring people, workshops, physical activities, music, dance and poetry. There is something in the week for everyone, young and not so young. All of us at some stage in our lives go through emotional distress that can lead to debilitating illness, whether it is the stress of day to day living, bereavement, physical ill health of ourselves or someone close to us, caring for our loved ones young and old...it is true to say that we will all suffer from mental ill heath at some point.

Have a look through our event schedule and come along and join in as many activities as possible. Pop in to the Pop Up Café in The Maltings, Tilbury Place in Kilkenny City where all the information you need will be available along with a free cup of tea and a chat.
Many thanks to all the organisations and individuals that have made this week happen, in particular to our sponsors The Taxback Group, PRL Group and Connecting for Life Ireland's National Strategy to Reduce Suicide 2015-2020. We hope you enjoy the week.
