Aunua Academy Mental Health Talk at Tallaght CS
Aunua Academy delivered our first school talk discussing mental health with the transition year students at Tallaght Community School in November 2018. With speakers, Jack Swift and Alan Gorman along with Aunua Academy Founder Karina Murray the students were given a talk about the different mental health issues and how to navigate through them.
Jack and Alan discussed mental health challenges to young people from personal experiences to help the students understand that there are solutions to any mental health and other issues they face and that others have had the same experiences.
Aunua Academy will be continuing to deliver mental health talks in both primary and secondary schools in Dublin and across Ireland. Our goal is to raise awareness among young people of mental health issues and the support tools available. As we build our mental health curriculum we are working to give a free mental health education to both young people and adults.
