MissionPossible - School Wellbeing Awards
We are delighted to announce our School Achievement Awards are back this year.
We recognise the importance of the contribution from schools to the promotion of positive mental health & wellbeing. The purpose of Mission Possible is to formally acknowledge and recognise contributions by schools across the country.
Mission Possible provides a formal process for acknowledging the outstanding achievements by Irish schools by recognising and celebrating these achievements.
Do you or someone you know experience mental health difficulties?
Many people with mental health difficulties can wait years before seeking support. Every day you live with a condition that is treatable, no matter what stage it’s at, is a day you haven’t lived to its fullest. You can change this.
It’s never too late or too early to seek support from people who have the knowledge and skills that can empower you to enjoy life again.
You are not alone, we are here to support you every step of the way.
