Southern Area LPG FYI – 19th August 2021

Welcome to the 65th edition of our information bulletin, FYI (For Your Information).

FYI Issue 65 19 August 2021

We are delighted to include a new resource for young people for emotional wellbeing and mental health.  Over the last few months, members of the Emotional Wellbeing Network in the Southern Area have worked in co-production with young people to produce the Youth Wellness Web, an online resource for young people across Northern Ireland to access information and tips on maintaining good emotional wellbeing. All the details are on the slide 3 of the newsletter, so please share this valuable resource with young people, parents and anyone working with young people.

We also have the usual wide range of opportunities, activities and resources to keep everyone occupied!

Keep well and keep connected!!
