Northern Ireland author visiting RHS in May

Save The Date — June 2!

The HFB experience in Northern Ireland can be joyous, but sometimes painful. The statistics on youth suicides in Northern Ireland reveal a tragic picture and this is a topic we discuss on our journey. On our last two visits we watched a play called “Blinkered” about a young man who takes his life and the impact on his family. We are extremely fortunate to have Pat Byrne, the author, at RHS for three weeks, starting May 15th. She will workshop the play with four different classes or blocks, culminating in an event on June 2 in the evening, when RHS students will perform adapted scenes and local mental health organizations and our own THC will facilitate discussion and share local support resources.

Take a look at the write up in the Derry Journal.
