Thursday May 29th:
'Insight Session'. EVE Cherryfield regularly host student work experience placement opportunities mainly from BCFE & IT Tallaght.  However, over the years the demand has increased and well exceeds their capacity to facilitate everyone who wishes to access this learning opportunity.  In order to bridge this gap, and to provide some 'insight' into the work they do, a group of service users collaborated in the Summer of 2013 to create an interactive learning opportunity which they could deliver in colleges and further afield to assist people in learning about the reality of the Recovery oriented day service they have developed over the years. This May, Cherryfield are extending an invitation to interested parties to participate in this session.  It may be of interest to individuals who are working professionally in the social care or nursing field, students, general public with an interest in learning more about mental health and wellbeing.


Registration is required as places are limited to 60 people. The session lasts approximately 3 hours, is FREE OF CHARGE and will include a light refreshment of tea or coffee or juice at break time. All Cherryfield asks is that you come with an open mind, a listening ear, and respectfully support the individuals who volunteer their personal experiences on the day.
To register your attendance, please email
cherryfield@eve.ie or phone Kelley on 014500029 Mon - Fri 8.30-3pm.

PLUS, spilling over into June.....

June 3rd & 5th: 

Health & Safety Week Events
As part of Cherryfield's focus on Health & Safety, they will have a session dedicated to the protection of mental health which is legislated for, and examining how we can all extend to a greater awareness of our responsibilities in the workplace from a psycho-social perspective.

Oscar McLennan, Writer. Performer. Monologuist. Live Art & Video Artist. Instigator of Live Art Events & Workshops. Now performing in Project Arts Theatre 

"Kiss of the Chicken King"....a stunning portrayal of a man living in isolation, an artistic portrayal bringing loneliness and fear to a wider audience through artistic and musical interpretation. Tragically funny. Oscar has adopted the Green Ribbon Campaign as something he feels is important as his works can trigger an awareness of the people living in our midst, and inspire people to be more aware of individuals living this stark reality.
