Huge Mental Health & Substance Misuse Forum in Tipperary

It was a privilege for myself and The Harmony Program‬ to be part of the Fethard & Killenaule ‘Joint Community Awareness Forum’ organised by ‪Coolmore Stud‬ and held in Moyglass last night with over 1,000 people attending. Mental health & drug and alcohol misuse are so intertwined for many people. Its imperative both need to be addressed to prevent or rehabilitate people from addiction. L to R: John Leahy (Alcohol Abuse); Roger Mehta (The Harmony Program); Alice Leahy (TRUST Foundation); Niall ‘Bressie’ Breslin (Mental Health & Anxiety); Fran Curry (Tipp FM) who chaired the evening; Nicole Ryan (Drugs Awareness Campaigner following the tragic death of her brother earlier in the year); and Alan Quinlan (Mental Health and Sport).13183168_10153670914517775_84998171_n
