Mental Health Ireland Coffee Morning

MeTimeLogo‘Mental healthTime = Coffee Time’ is a National Campaign to build awareness among communities around the importance of maintaining good mental health during World Mental Health Week, 6th to 13th October 2013.

Cafes are often the perfect social outlet for people to relax, have some space, meet friends and in short, have some ‘Me Time’.  Cafes in Ireland now have the opportunity to work in conjunction with Coffee Culture and Mental Health Ireland in participating and promoting in such a worthwhile and important campaign.
