A HUGE thank you to the girls from the childcare classes who organised a Cheerios breakfast morning in aid of Childline –  It was a great success and raised just over €100 – Well done 🙂 

Many thanks for all those who supported the event – very much appreciated.

‘Positive mental health’ by AWARE

Aware’s positive mental health programme for students is arriving to Marino College.

Aware undertakes to create a society where people affected by stress, depression and mood disorders are understood, supported, free from stigma, and are encouraged to access appropriate therapies.

The programme explores:

  • Principles for good mental health and actions that can help.
  • The importance of looking at the positive aspects of our lives.
  • Why similar situations impact people in different ways.
  • The role of core beliefs.
  • How to prevent or recognise depression and anxiety.
  • The importance of resilience and how to build it.
  • The programme introduces The Coping Triangle (Hayes 2006, 2011) a useful tool which students can use in everyday situations to help relieve stress and understand what is going on for them.

The college has the following talks available to students

Wednesday, 15th October @ 10.30-12.00 and 13.00 – 14.30

Friday, 24th October @ 10.30-12.00 and 13.00 – 14.30

If you are interested in attending any of the above or would like more information please contact Liz – Each talk has limited numbers and booking is needed. The room where the talk will be held will be allocated on the morning of each talk. Check with the SU and/or the student notice boards
