Family information series: Understanding Trauma from a Family Perspective

St Patrick's Mental Health Services (SPMHS) is hosting the second webinar in the family information series on 2 November.

The next webinar in our Mental Health Recovery: A Family Perspective series focuses on Understanding Trauma from a Family Perspective. Dr Clodagh Dowling, Head of the Department of Psychology in SPMHS, discusses the challenges faced by families supporting a loved one who is working through trauma.

When supporting someone in mental health recovery, family members often find it challenging to access simple practical information on mental ill health, services, support and self care. This webinar aims to address any questions or concerns you, as a carer, may have.

Registration is free but essential; register your place at the second lecture here.
