It can be hard for young people/children with epilepsy to sometimes meet with others living with the condition. That is why we offer Get ChARTy!
This virtual event allows 8-12 year old's living with epilepsy to meet with others to have a chat - and do some art at the same time (can you see how we developed the title for this event!).
Get ChARTy is facilitated by Nichola Mooney. Nichola is an executive council member of the Irish Association of Creative Arts Therapists. Throughout her career, Nichola has used embodiment, projection, role (EPR) and play within the therapeutic process to help support children living with long-term health conditions and in other difficult situations. While those in attendance will be getting to know each other while getting creative, Nichola will be using these techniques to help them better understand themselves and help them better understand that their epilepsy is not a barrier to doing all the things they want to do in life.
Our Community Resource Officer, Niamh Jones, will also be in attendance at the event to offer information and support around epilepsy. If you have any questions about this event, please do not hesitate to contact Niamh by by calling 085 876 6628. Otherwise, please see details below on how to register for this event.
We look forward to welcoming young people with epilepsy on the night!
This event is for children/young people living with epilepsy aged from 8 - 12.
Wednesday 13th March 2024, 19:00 - 20:00.
Online, via Zoom!
To register for this event, please email Niamh on email@example.com with the subject line "Get ChARTy". Pre-registration is essential as parent/guardian consent is required in advance in order for a young person to attend.
