Health Promotion and Improvement Manager, Emer Smyth said “it is important that people living in our communities are aware of the large array of supports that exist to help them to stay well and to work their way through difficulties that happen as is normal in life. The conversations, like the work in health promotion are broad in range and topic and give a flavour of the work our team are involved in every day.”
Meath Partnership CEO, Michael Ludlow, said that the Company is delighted to have an opportunity to work in partnership with the HSE in communicating with those in need of healthcare services. Mr Ludlow said the use of the podcast medium as produced by the HSE, enables service providers such as Meath Partnership to reach out and speak directly to those in the community entitled to support. Stressing the importance of the Wellness Hub, recently opened by Meath Partnership, and which offers support to both young and old, Mr Ludlow said this new service has a focus on mental wellbeing with a special interest in young people.
Developer and host of Meath Talks, Anthony O’Prey, HSE Health Promotion Officer, said “these podcasts give everyone an opportunity to listen to the voice of support that is available to them within their community. I would encourage everyone to listen to these conversations and share them among your loved ones; they are an invaluable resource especially during these challenging times.”
