A big thank you to all the Schools, Youthreach, NLN, Resilience & LCA groups for attending the KDYS Youth Information Annual event in KDYS Tralee on the 7th December.

KDYS Youth Information is a free confidential information service for young people aged 12-25 years and covers the areas of employment, education, health and wellbeing, rights and entitlements, sports, travel, leisure and European opportunities.

KDYS Youth Information is available across County Kerry with the main KDYS Youth Information hubs in KDYS Tralee and KDYS Killarney.

KDYS Youth information hosted a Youth Information event for young people in KDYS Tralee on 7th December 10am-1:20pm and are hosting the event again in KDYS Killarney on the 15th December 10am-3pm.   Both events will be followed by a networking event for those engaging or working with young people, in Tralee from 2-3pm and Killarney 3-4pm.

You and Your Mental Health

You and Your Mental Health

A resource to support your mental health and wellbeing every day.

Mental health is about how we feel, think and behave in the world. Like our physical health, our mental health can vary, depending on what is happening in our lives, our ability to cope and how we are looking after ourselves throughout our adult lives.

Check out this is a short film with Kerry Comhairle na nÓg highlighting that young people have to deal with a number of different issues and pressures and these are not always visible. The project was made possible by funding from Healthy Ireland through Kerry CYPSC. We are very grateful to them for their support. Watch it here.
