Advisory Committee

What is our Advisory Committee?

The Walk in My Shoes (WIMS) Advisory Committee is a collection of 40 individuals from three different groups who guide WIMS by making recommendations and providing a fresh perspective on our mental health initiatives, resources and events.

The three groups represented are:

  • Teachers/ School Staff
  • Parents
  • Students

The Committee changes every academic year.

  • How do I become a member of the committee?

    If you are interested in being on our committee for the 2020/21 academic year please email info@walkinmyshoes.ie to register your interest

  • What's involved in being a member of the committee?

    We are mindful of how busy students, teachers and parents are and we will not ask anything that would be considered too much of a time commitment.

    If you are on the Advisory Committee, you’ll essentially be a member of our online forum

    • We will email you ideas or links to drafts of new Walk in My Shoes resources and ask you for your valuable feedback and input
    • We will keep you up to date with an email every month/2 months on WIMS developments and plans
    • We will ask you to keep us informed of your needs; Let us know what it is that you want/need in your school to assist in your mental health promotion lessons. This could be further resources, opportunities to collaborate or something new entirely)
