I joined Community Minds because I believe that if people talked to each
other more, face to face, without technology involved , less people would be suffering with feelings of isolation and depression. More issues could be resolved before reaching the stage where there is the need for professional help and stigma about mental health issues can be removed.

As a second year student in Applied Social Care at the Wexford Campus of
Carlow IT, I am available to my fellow students to talk to and also in my
workplace for my colleagues if needed.
