Cllr Francis Timmons – Independent Voice

Mental Health information day


Wednesday, January 20, 2016


MOTION: Councillor F. Timmons

“That a Mental Health information day is held in the Clondalkin Council offices that highlights services available and local services and agencies are invited to attend.”


Planning for the Council’s Annual Health and Well Being Week, due to take place in September 2016, is already underway. As in previous years, an extensive programme of events will be developed in partnership with a host of organisations and agencies, both local and national, and will be delivered at venues throughout the County.

Health and wellbeing, incorporating mental health, is one of the major challenges faced by all who live, work or visit our County and healthy minds and bodies are essential to enjoying complete physical, mental and social wellbeing. Local health for a were held in both Tallaght and Clondalkin last year and mental health was one of the areas which received a particular focus at each event. The Council’s offices in Clondalkin would not offer sufficient space and flexibility to be suitable to host such a for a and for this reason the events are held in local venues which are large enough to accommodate sufficient numbers of agencies and groups.

This proposal outlined in the motion will however be brought to the attention of the planning group.
