Due to the success of the Letterkenny Wellness Cafe, it is now giving free training to people to set up a peer led wellness cafe in their own area.
A wellness cafe is a safe support for those struggling with their mental health to come together and have a tea and a chat with their peers, and support from a mental health worker.
The organisers are looking to recruit people all over Donegal and will be holding online info sessions over the next few weeks.
Funding has been received from Donegal Mind Wellness, Majella O'Donnell's mental health charity.
You will have to download Webex (a platform like Zoom) to take part and then follow the link below for your area.
