THE Friday 25th June closing date to register an interest in hosting an activity or event during the 2021 Kerry Mental Health and Wellbeing Fest is fast approaching.
This year’s #KerryMHWFest will run from 9th to 16th October. It is held annually to highlight World Mental Health Day on 10th October.
Organised by an interagency steering group, the key focus of the Kerry Mental Health and Wellbeing Fest is to promote mental health and wellbeing in Kerry through a fun and interactive programme of events.
The Chair of the Steering Committee, Donagh Hennebry, said: “The Kerry Mental Health and Wellbeing Fest aims to create awareness of, and schedule events that empower people to engage with the Five Ways to Wellbeing – Connect | Give | Take Notice | Keep Learning | Be Active – as well as raising awareness of the available supports and services in the county. The Fest has a wide reach across Kerry and we want to continue to build on its success in 2021. But we can’t do this without you! We are inviting anyone who is interested in helping us achieve our goal, by hosting an event/s during #KerryMHWFest, to register online as soon as possible.”
