The Mental Health Ireland Art & Photography Competition is open for entries!
Deadline for entries is November 12th.
This year's theme is ‘Reflecting on How I’ve Grown’ – in the face of the uncertainties and challenges of the year.
This might be the learning of a new skill, the ways in which you gave back to others and your community, the drawing on courage and strength you never knew you had, how you may have matured and coped with new stresses.
Winners get a One4All gift card, feature in the Mental Health Ireland calendar and have their pieces feature in a public exhibition!

We are all aware that wearing a face covering reduces the spread of COVID-19 in the community but only if worn properly, covering both your nose and mouth.
A cloth face covering should cover the nose and go under the chin and:
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops
- Include at least 2 layers of fabric
- Allow for breathing without restriction

Our computer trainees were out for a mindful nature walk yesterday down along the Garavogue River and Doorly Park in Sligo. It was a lovely Autumn morning and they captured some great shots of the trees and autumn leaves.

With the number of Covid-19 cases continuing to increase we all need to know the signs. If you have a cough, fever, breathing difficulties or experience changes in your sense of taste or smell it might mean you have Covid-19 and could pass it on. If you have any symptoms, self-isolate and phone your GP for a free consultation.

One of the five ways to well being and looking after your mental health is 'Connect'. Now more than ever in these challenging times it is important to stay connected with family, friends, colleagues, neighbours. We may have to connect a little bit differently using technology but by staying connected we feel happier and more secure, giving us a better sense of purpose.
