Healthy ClubFrom our Healthy Club Officer Michael Power,
Mental Health Questionnaire
The GAA and its official mental health partner Samaritans are conducting a short questionnaire to gather some information on what mental health activities have been rolled out in Healthy Clubs and to see what other supports our Healthy Clubs would like in the area of mental health and emotional wellbeing. This will help us in future development endeavours: Mental Health Questionnaire (office.com)

Virtual Life Skills Programme
Aware are now offering their Life Skills programme a virtual group setting, using Zoom. Based on the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), the Life Skills programme is designed to help people learn more about how we think and how this can influence our actions in helpful or unhelpful ways. The Life Skills Group Programme is delivered over the course of six weeks in 90 minute evening sessions. With the help of a series of easy-to-follow booklets and expert guidance from a trained facilitator at each session, you can learn how to better manage the stress of everyday life, recognise and manage unhelpful thoughts, learn new ways of thinking and ultimately begin the journey to a healthier and more confident life.
