The public health situation over the last year has been very challenging for everyone. For Secondary students and their families, with all the anxieties, uncertainties, and upheavals, there have been additional demands on parents, challenges to usual routines, and stretched coping skills.

This course is in the East Limerick area and delivered by SHEP, The Social & Health Education Project in collaboration with Hospital FRC, Croom FRC, and Ballyhoura Development and funded through Healthy Ireland and SICAP.
