Olympic hero Kenneth Egan to speak at free mental health seminar in city
OLYMPIC boxing hero Kenneth Egan will join Minister and Kilkenny TD John Paul Phelan at a free Positive Mental Health seminar in the city.
The event will take place at the Clubhouse Hotel at 8pm tomorrow and all members of the public are invited to attend.
Aside from Egan, guest speakers will include mental health professional, Mary McTernan of Greater Responsibility and Awareness of Suicide Prevention (GRASP) and Derek Deavoy of Taxi Watch.
Speaking ahead of the event, Minister Phelan said: “Lots of positive work is being done to reassure people that it’s OK not to feel OK; to encourage them to talk to others and reach out for help. Everyone has their individual struggles and nobody should feel isolated or alone.
“This will be a very informal and informative event and we will hear the personal stories of three brave people who will share their experiences and struggles. I really hope that we can reach out to people, that they will have the courage to come along and know that they are not alone.”
