Course to help teens to cope with loss
Starting next week, there will be an eight week course for teenagers in Mitchelstown on how to cope with loss or change.
The course ‘Living with Loss – Seasons for Growth’, is for 13-19 year olds and it will begin on Tuesday, February 26, from 4pm until 5.30pm in the Oznam Centre on Thomas Street in Mitchelstown. It is being run by the Mitchelstown Family Coordinating Committee and will focus on self-esteem, managing feelings, problem solving, decision making, effective communication and support and how to manage change effectively.
