Healthy Galway City is partnering with The Galway Recovery College, the University of Sanctuary, and the Ladies Virtual Hangout for a Galway City Connect Cafe. This event is a part of a series of event celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month.
Connect Cafés are organised events that bring people together to connect and start conversations. Their goal is to open conversations about mental health, strengthening the connection with ourselves, with others and with our communities.
This event is open to everyone and completely free. We are encouraging people from new communities and those living in direct provision, older adults, and young people to attend and to connect.
Speakers will include Esther Eleojo Abbah, Psychotherapist, who will speak on topics relating to mental health and recovery.
Children and families are welcome; Real Action for Kids’ Garda-vetted volunteers will be organising activities to keep children entertained so that parents and guardians can participate in the Connect Café.
There will be food and refreshments provided by the Melting Pot Luck and Mr. Waffle Café.
Please come along, bring some friends, and share a conversation at the Galway City Connect Café, taking place in the ILAS Centre in the University of Galway on Saturday 21st October from 11 am. to 1 pm. If travelling by bus, the venue can be accessed via the 404 route and Lower Newcastle (Greenfields Entrance) stop.
