Call for ideas: South Tipperary Positive Mental Health Festival 2016

Date posted: 29 June 2016

To coincide with World Mental Health Day on Monday 10 October members of the South Tipperary Action Network (S.T.A.N.) are organising a Positive Mental Health Festival. The organisers are seeking  individuals, groups or organisations to promote and share an event or organise an event during 7 – 15 October 2016. The aim of the festival is to celebrate positive mental health and the amazing achievements of people who have used the mental health services through a broad range of events.
