First Fortnight: “Dear Diary, my mental health during the pandemic…”

As part of First Fortnight 2021, Mental Health Reform is delighted to present “Dear Diary, my mental health during the pandemic…” It is broadly accepted that the impact of COVID 19 on peoples mental health has been significant, and yet, many will have experienced these impacts completely differently. Some people who may never have experienced a mental health challenge before may have felt the emotional impact of public health restrictions – the increased loneliness and isolation. Others, those who live with lifelong mental health difficulties, may have been adversely impacted by challenges in accessing mental health services. Children, older people, parents – everyone has their own mental health story to tell. This event encourages people to do just that. We invite members of the public to tell their own mental health stories in a short, 300 word diary entry, to be submitted in advance of our event. Our event will display and explore some of the themes raised in these diary entries, the good and the bad, in order to look at how our mental health system will need to change to support those who need it. We will be joined by a mixed panel of people who work or have an interest in mental health. Please send your 300 word diary entry to info@mentalhealthreform.ie by Monday, 11th January. Event Details: Date: Wednesday, 13th January Time: 6:00 – 7:30 PM Venue: Virtual via Zoom Price: Free Register: https://firstfortnight.ticketsolve.com/shows/873616342
