Aware 'Relatives & Friends' programme returns to Sligo

Registration is now open for Aware's 'Relatives & Friends' programme which will take place at Radisson Blu Hotel, Sligo this October.

The free programme, six hours over the course of four weeks, aims to provide helpful information about depression and bipolar disorder, provide practical advice and address the challenges faced each day when supporting a loved one experiencing depression or bipolar disorder.

The Relatives & Friends Programme is specifically designed to equip people with the tools to understand and support a loved one experiencing depression or bipolar disorder, while also focusing on the self-care of the supporter.

The content addresses the signs and symptoms of depression and bipolar disorder, offers practical advice on self-care, teaches coping tools, communication skills, and addresses the issues that arise for people who are supporting a loved one.

The workshops provide an opportunity for discussion but at no stage is anyone asked to share information if they do not wish to.

The programme begins on October 2nd. Online registration for the programme is now open and places are available to anyone over 18.

Those interested in attending are encouraged to book quickly as places are limited and will fill up fast.
