Walk in My Shoes Radio returns for a fifth consecutive year

Special programme aimed at primary school students and teachers set to air on World Mental Health Day, Wednesday 10th October.

Hugely successful pop-up station Walk in My Shoes Radio, run by St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, is returning for a fifth consecutive year from Monday 8th October and will broadcast over 70 hours of engaging and enlightening content from 7am to 9pm each day until Friday 12th October.

Walk in My Shoes Radio is dedicated to promoting positive mental health and this year, to mark World Mental Health Day, the station will broadcast a special programme for Primary schools aimed at students and teachers.

Focussing on understanding and minding your mental health, this special broadcast will feature an interview with Bressie and will culminate in a live, interactive mindfulness exercise that children across the country can participate in.   This programme will air between 11.15am and 12.15pm on World Mental Health Day, Wednesday 10th October, and schools around Ireland are encouraged to tune in for some positive and informative insights into youth mental health.

Speaking on this year’s campaign, Paul Gilligan, CEO of St Patrick’s Mental Health Services said ‘As Walk in My Shoes Radio enters its fifth consecutive year, we’re delighted that we have the opportunity to align our content with The World Federation for Mental Health’s very important theme for 2018 of young people and mental health in our ever- changing world. We want to encourage children to talk about mental health and with Walk in My Shoes Radio we have the perfect platform to allow young people to take charge of the content they’re hearing – ensuring that it’s engaging and relevant. Our ultimate aim this year, most importantly, is to equip our youth with the tools and advice they need to build resilience and foster good mental health.’   

This year’s presenter line-up features: RTE 2FM’s Jenny Greene, Stephen Byrne and Blathnaid Treacy, social media star James Patrice, TV Presenter Maia Dunphy, comedian Alison Spittle along with some young, budding broadcasters who won the chance to interview some of Ireland’s biggest names from TV, radio and music including Bressie, RTE’s Bryan Dobson, Keelin Shanley and Claire Byrne!

Walk in My Shoes Radio will also be hosting a live panel discussion every evening from 7-8pm with engaging and important themes including Supporting Youth Mental Health in an ever changing world, Life Online – Implications for our Mental Health and the Power of Creativity in Supporting Mental Health.
Listeners can tune in from 7pm every evening or those interested in attending can register for free tickets at www.walkinmyshoes.ie/wimsfm
