Crisis Cafe Visioning Workshop: St Canice’s Neighbourhood Hall, Butts Green, Kilkenny City : Wednesday 10th July, 1.30 pm - 4 pm
Registration and a light lunch provided from 1.30 pm to 2 pm.

This workshop is part of a broader feasibility study to explore the potential of a ‘Crisis Cafe’ in Kilkenny. A ‘Crisis Cafe’ would be a community peer-led response to those experiencing a mental health crisis out of hours, and an alternative to the Emergency Department.
The feasibility study is led by an understanding of the needs of people experiencing a mental health crisis and the existing services and supports available. This workshop builds on the practice of co-production and is open to people with lived experience, family and carers, peer support workers, service providers, community organisations and other professionals. Please book you place with Rosie on rosie@callanworkhouseunion.com. Please let us know if you have dietary needs for lunch.

Thank you to everyone who attended the June 'Keeping it Delightful' Kilmoganny Community Coffee Morning. It was a busy morning with lots of chat between friends and neighbours. Many people left with delightful items which they had taken from the recycle table. Others went home to tidier homes having left their, no longer needed delightful items for others to pick up. A total of 73 euro was raised and given to St. Joseph's Home which will be used towards the cost of a theatre trip for the residents.
The next 'Keeping it Delightful' Coffee morning will be on Tuesday 30th July. Put the date in your diary.
