As Development Manager for the Kerry Mental Health Association I wish to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Kerry Mental Health Association Website. It is the Association’s wish that the Website will assist in providing a greater public awareness of the functions and activities of the K.M.H.A. particularly in promoting positive mental health and supporting people with mental health problems, their families and carers by identifying their needs and advocating their rights.
Dan O'Connor, Development Manager, K.M.H.A
Articles reasearch compiled from a variety of professionals and individuals in relation to various issues that they have experience of during the course of their work or who may have had a personal experience.
Since spring 2001 the K.M.H.A. has committed itself to ongoing research, particularly among young people. To date it has completed two surveys among post primary school students. Both surveys were conducted to try and determine the levels of stress experienced by young people and to establish how effective they were in coping with stress.

The K.M.H.A. is very aware from research based evidence of the high levels of stress experienced by some students in relation to various issues and the need for support. In that light the K.M.H.A. devotes this section to students where the information available to them may provide some of that much needed support and advice.
