More than 70 young people in integrated education across Northern Ireland had their say on mental health issues at a conference at Drumlins Integrated Primary School, Ballynahinch, on Thursday 10 October 2019 – World Mental Health Day.
‘Listening … A Mental Health Conference’ was organised by the IEF in partnership with NICIE and was supported by the National Lottery Community Fund.
Harry McGoldrick, a Year 13 student at Drumragh Integrated College, Omagh, one of the conference’s young keynote speakers, said it was very important to him to be involved:
“Now in Year 13 it’s my turn to give back to the community by focusing on improving mental health training and services in Northern Ireland. I am thrilled to be a guest speaker at this event.
