I am WORTH it – Wexford Offers Reliable Teenage Help, is an initiative being implemented by the Coláiste Bríde Student Council to support young people and their families in promoting a positive understanding of teenage mental health and wellbeing.
Our message is a simple one: that everyone needs to look after their mental health and at times it may be fragile and need support. I am WORTH it provides information on the different factors and life events that can impact on mental health on a daily basis. It provides an understanding of the issues and highlights the services that are available when help is needed. We hope that we have also included some practical suggestions that might be useful to teenagers, helping them to cope a little better in difficult times.
We would like to sincerely thank the members of Kinsale Youth Support Services (KYSS) for generously giving us their permission to use and adapt their original publication. We are very grateful for all their hard work and research. We would also like to acknowledge the financial support we received from the Wexford Mental Health Association, whose sponsorship enabled us to publish this website.
When our mental health is well we can enjoy day to day life and we can get the best out of things.
