Over 500 Transition Year students from 30 schools from around Cork county and city will come together on May 1st for ‘Teen Talk’, a health and wellbeing conference with an exciting line up of high profile speakers including Bressie and Dr. Pixie McKenna, which will take place in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Little Island.

The fully booked out event being organised by Cork County Council, in association with their Local Community Development Committees (LCDCs) and funded under Healthy Ireland, will focus on four main areas – Fitness, Healthy Food, Mental Health, and General Health & Wellbeing.

All students attending the half day ‘Teen Talk’ event on May 1st will be given a Green Ribbon to wear in support of ‘See Change’, a month-long campaign being run by the national Mental Health Stigma Reduction Partnership, to encourage people in Ireland to end mental health stigma this May.
