JOE teams up with LYONS Tea & Pieta House for #TimeToTalk, a special live event

This is an event you won't want to miss.

Following the success of our #JOElive: Mental Health series of talks in May, JOE has teamed up with LYONS Tea supported by Pieta House to bring you #TimeToTalk.


In recent years, JOE has played a leading role in discussing mental health in Ireland - whether it's the impassioned words of Bressie, the shattering personal stories of people like Mick Finnegan and Cat O Broin, or a heartfelt plea to the government not to cut funding, we've been there.

And we will continue to be there.

#TimeToTalk takes place in the Royal College of Physicians on Kildare Street in Dublin on Monday, 10 October (you can sign up to attend for free at the bottom of this article) and features a number of committed, high profile campaigners for better mental health facilities in Ireland.

The night will see a panel discussion with the following speakers...
