World Mental Health Day

World Mental health Day 10th October 2012 proved a very festive and fun occasion for the folks in Right Here Fermanagh. The ‘Kick off Karnival’ organised by Right Here staff and the youth Bank team provided a full evening’s entertainment and games for the young people of Fermanagh. There was carnival games, a chocolate fountain, fresh fruit fest, fancy dress, free goodies and lots of prizes to be won. Oh... and most importantly a surprise visit from Mr Santa Clause himself.

The carnivals activities were aimed at promoting positive mental health for young people by bringing them together and providing a safe environment where they could enjoy themselves.

Resources from the Right Here Project were also distributed around the main catchment areas for pedestrians in Enniskillen and this proved very beneficial for promoting not only the project but also the fact that it was world mental health day. The fancy dress participants provoked a lot of laughter and a general good feeling in the town.

Throughout the event we had 49 young people attend the centre for the carnival activities and many more receiving positive mental health info on the street.

A brilliant day had by all who attended. A real feeling of enjoyment and positivity surged the air.

Happy Mental Health Week to all.

Right Here Fermanagh.
