Here at Marino College of Further Education, we take a Holistic view to your education. We all want you to succeed at your studies, however, we acknowledge that for you to succeed at your studies, there are a number of other factors that need to be considered. One of these is your mental health, another is your spiritual well being. This section gives you some links to web sites that can help- as well as knowing that you can talk to your tutor, class teachers or to the college Guidance counsellor at any time.
Here are some websites that you could look at!
Pieta House, the centre for the prevention of self-harm or suicide, opened its doors in Lucan in January 2006. Since then, six centres of excellence have followed suit in Ballyfermot, Mungret, Roscrea, Tuam,Bishopstown and most recently Castleisland while we also have an outreach centre in Finglas.
Let Someone Know
It’s easy to see when something’s wrong with us physically. But what about our mental health?
If people don’t even notice you’ve got a problem, they’re not going to offer to help.
Mental health is something we all have and it is something we should take steps to protect in the same way we guard our physical health.
If you can get your head in the right place then you’ve got the strength to handle anything life throws at you.
Look after your mental health
This website has been developed by the HSE National Office for Suicide Prevention (www.nosp.ie) as part of the ‘Your Mental Health’ awareness campaign, which aims to improve awareness and understanding of mental health and well-being in Ireland. This is particularly important in the present economic climate when we are under financial pressures, losing our job or facing relationship difficulties.
SpunOut.ie is a not-for-profit website created by young people for young people.
Our service promotes general wellbeing and healthy living in order to prevent and positively intervene in harmful behaviour where it occurs amongst our peer group.
Our goal is to enable our peers to live happy, healthy lives where we can avail of opportunities and build a bright future for ourselves.
We aim to do this by giving easy access to relevant, reliable, and non-judgemental advice to assist other young people in making informed decisions.
We serve the young people of Ireland and Northern Ireland between the ages of 16 and 25.
