Feedback from Parents who attended the Eolas programme in Sligo recently was:

"we were referred to the Eolas programme for family members by the South Sligo Mental Health team. Every session we attended was excellent, particularly the ones on medication and understanding what the patient goes through. We could not fault anything. This course was so well run and planned with great understanding and compassion by all those connected with the course"

It's great to receive such positive feedback about the Eolas Programme which is provided by Sligo/Leitrim/South Donegal/West Cavan mental health service.

Eolas is a programme for service users with a diagnosis of Schizophrenia or Bipolar Disorder and their families/close friends. The programme consists of two parallel programmes, each lasting 8 weeks, a programme for services users and a programme for families/close friends. They are delivered by two co-facilitators, one of whom is a peer facilitator (I.e. a service user or family member) and the other a clinician.

The Eolas programme is available to those who attend the Sligo/Leitrim/South Donegal/West Cavan Mental Health Services and to their families. For further information on this, we advise people to talk to their key-worker or any member of their community mental health team.
