Every Monday throughout February, Big Brother Big Sister in Mayo is organising a series of fun workshops for young people and volunteers aimed at promoting positive mental health and encouraging positive peer influence. The workshops will be facilitated by professionals in their respective fields. In preparation for the workshops, we encourage all matches to have 3 questions ready for the experts!
