National Executive Meetings 2014-15

The National Executive meet once a month to work on their recommendation from Dáil na nÓg which is to: ‘Have a National Youth Gathering for 2nd Level students, with music and events, to improve attitudes towards Mental Health’ . We have had fourteen full meetings and three sub-group meetings so far.

So this is what we came up with to make this recommendation a reality – Let’s Go Mental is a series of 31 regional events for teenagers to promote positive mental health through music, sport, the arts and other fun activities. Let’s Go Mental events took place all over the country from June to November. The national launch of Let’s Go Mental took place in Dublin on Wednesday 24th June 2015. Watch the launch video here:

Final meeting: 12.09.2015

This was our final meeting as a group and involved a recap and sharing of ideas from those who have already had their Let’s Go Mental events, and those who have theirs coming up over the next six weeks.
