On Monday 10 October 2016, Brenda Burns from Action Mental Health came to speak to my y13 Health and Social Care students. They spoke about misconceptions to do with Mental Health and how to overcome difficulties with Mental Health. We learnt about ways to look after our own Mental Health and everyone pledged to do one thing to take care of their own Mental Health.
On 11 October 2016 WHSCT attended Erne Integrated College to present a Careers information talk on Social Work as a Career. Maria Emilsson led the presentation and two other social workers gave talks about their day to day experiences. Prospective social work students were given information on how to apply to study Social Work and it was very informative and useful. Students attended from many Enniskillen schools and colleges and some students travelled from as far as Omagh. Thanks to the WHSCT for organising this brilliant event.
