What is a Wellness Workshop?


A Wellness Workshop is a day for you to take time out and learn a wide range of practical tools and tips that you can use in your everyday life to improve your own wellness.These one-day workshops aim to help you understand and take charge of your own mental health. The workshop is for anyone and everyone as we all have mental health!

How is the Wellness Workshop run?


Workshops are informal and relaxed. They are facilitated by people with both lived life experience of mental health difficulties, and people with experience of working in various mental health arenas. The day runs from 9.30am to 4.30pm and includes regular refreshments and a light lunch. A comprehensive Wellness Workbook to support you in maintaining your daily wellness is also included.


Attending a Wellness Workshop?


There is no charge to attend a Wellness Workshop. Currently places are fully funded by the National Office of Suicide Prevention, the Iris O’Brien Foundation, our wonderful donors and our incredible fundraisers, making our Wellness Workshops accessible to everyone. We do suggest a voluntary contribution from participants on the day, but this is by no means obligatory.
