Transition Year Programme

The Transition Year (TY) Programme is a one-week mental health awareness placement, conducted by our clinical staff in St Patrick’s Mental Health Services (SPMHS), Dublin

About the Programme

About the Programme

Students have approximately five sessions each day, focusing on various aspects of mental health. They also get to take part in a mock Multidisciplinary Team Meeting (MDT). The programme runs from 10am – 2pm, Monday – Friday, and there is 45 minutes for lunch each day (provided in the restaurant in the hospital).

In May, all of the students who have completed the TY programme in St Patrick's Mental Health Services are invited back for a graduation ceremony with a special guest speaker. All students receive a graduation certificate and leave the programme equipped to act as mental health ambassadors in both their schools and local communities
