Walk in My Shoes TY programme
Walk in My Shoes is a mental health education and awareness campaign of St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services. St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services is Ireland’s largest, independent, not-for-profit, mental health service provider in Ireland.
Each year, Walk in My Shoes runs a Transition Year Programme. The aim of the programme is to educate young people about mental health issues and to breakdown the stigma associated with mental health illness.
Last year, 100 TY students from school around the country participated in a one week health awareness placement conducted by St. Patrick’s clinical staff.
In 2016/17 one of our students, Mary Tiernan is participated in the programme from 20th – 24th February 2017.
