PleaseTalk Forum

Students’ Union officers and student support staff from colleges across Ireland gathered in Dublin on 2 August 2022 for the third annual PleaseTalk Forum.

The forum, hosted this year by Dublin Institute of Technology’s Students’ Union, provides the PleaseTalk mental health campaign with the ideal opportunity to engage incoming and current welfare officers and staff on strategies to develop PleaseTalk on respective campuses.

Jerry Buttimer TD, Chair of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Health and Children delivered the keynote address at this year’s forum. Commenting on the event, Deputy Buttimer pointed out that “everybody comes with a story to tell. It is important that each one of us talk, speak to someone and actively communicate either in person or on line.  Support is available to students.”
