Tomorrow will see the launch of a new podcast series. Stories of Recovery will share the mental health stories of people local to Cavan and Monaghan; and their journeys to recovery.

‘Stories of Recovery’, a podcast series will hear from local people who have lived through adversities. How those challenged their mental health and wellbeing! And how they now flourish and continue to stay well.

People who provide support and services locally are joining in the conversation. They'll talk about the services that offer mental health signposting for those who need it.


An interview explaining about the podcast will broadcast today on the Wider View lunchtime programme on Northern Sound, ahead of World Suicide Prevention Day tomorrow.

This initiative is a collaboration between Mental Health Ireland and the HSE Cavan Monaghan Mental Health Services as part of the Connecting for Life Cavan Monaghan strategy to reduce suicide in our communities.

The podcast is hosted by Miffy Hoad, Development Officer with Mental Health Ireland for the Cavan Monaghan area.
