 Building Connectedness In Our School Communities

Now Available Building Connectedness 1

“Building Connectedness In Our School Communities” is a series on online talks that are now available for post primary schools throughout Co. Wexford.  Wexford Children and Young People’s Services Committee (CYPSC) developed this series of talks and the team here in the HSE Regional Suicide Resource Office is a partner in the initiative.


There are nine individual talks available and they are specifically targeted at teachers, parents and young people with three talks for each cohort.  The talks are of very high quality and feature inputs from professionals in the area of mental health and resilience.  They are a valuable resource for the wider school community especially now as you are dealing with unprecedented times where the issues facing school staff are especially challenging.  To access the talks click here<https://scanner.topsec.com/?d=1466&t=59f2e3ef12c434eee685fc56dfdaf0d40859282c&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.wexfordcypsc.ie%2Fbuilding-connectedness-in-our-school-communities&r=show>.
