Let’s Go Mental: Wicklow 05.11.2015








Druid’s Glen Hotel, 05.11.2015

Wicklow’s Let’s Go Mental event focused very much on team-work, and how important it is to #Connect with other people, and to work together to make things happen #Get Involved #Give. Some serious strategising was to be seen during the morning session where everyone worked together to make a free-standing tower, with some simple materials. But as you can see from the pics below, some people’s interpretation of free-standing leaves a lot to be desired… 🙂 Each group had to also come up with a positive affirmation or motto about mental health, and to put a positive message out into the world today. Here are some of them.

We aspire to inspire
