Coalition Conversations. Youth Mental Health: Changes During COVID-19

Mental Health Reform, the national coalition for mental health in Ireland, presents the ‘Coalition Conversations’ webinar series. COVID-19 and public health measures have brought about huge changes to the way we live.

While necessary, these measures have had a significant effect on young people, their lives and their mental health. Since the crisis began, organisations such as SpunOut have reported an increase in demand for their services, owing particularly to increased levels of anxiety and stress among young people.

This episode, we hear from expert speakers about their experiences working to support young people’s mental health and wellbeing during this challenging time:
– Ian Power, CEO of SpunOut and 50808
– Jason Smith, Regional Clinical Manager, Jigsaw
