Willow for Family, Friends, and Supporters in ARCHES Recovery College, Clonskeagh



5 X 2 hour sessions.


Facilitated by a HSE Social Worker and an ARCHES staff member, Willow explores identity and self-care when supporting people in your life who are experiencing mental health difficulties.

The course is called Willow as the Willow branch is a metaphor for the need for supporters to be flexible but not to break.

It examines:

  1. What to expect from mental health services,
  2. Listening and communication,
  3. The meaning of being a supporter, and
  4. How to be an empowering supporter.


Willow can help supporters articulate and normalise their lived experience; develop new coping mechanisms; and discuss ways of helping their loved one.


Location: ARCHES Recovery College, Clonskeagh, Dublin 6.

6pm – 8pm Wednesday 22, 29 May, 5, 12, 19 June


The Willow course is suitable for anyone who is is a member of a family impacted by poor mental health or a friend or supporter of someone experiencing mental health difficulties.
