Mental health app sealed with a KYSS
A new app has been launched in Kinsale which aims to help young people in the area.
Kinsale Youth Support Service (KYSS) recently launched the new app, which provides information on mental health and highlights the services that are available when help is needed.
KYSS will operate as a beacon for young people and their families in Kinsale and the surrounding areas by promoting general wellbeing, including positive physical and mental health.
The app was developed by Brendan Flaherty and Jason Nelligan, two CIT students, and is free on app stores by searching KYSS. The app was launched recently by Sinead Glennon, Head of Mental Health Services, HSE Cork and Kerry.
The launch took place in front of an assembled audience of youth and community leaders.
Councillor Seamus McGrath, Mayor of County Cork; Margaret Murphy O’Mahony TD, Micheal Collins TD, Senator Tim Lombard, Councillor Kevin Murphy and Superintendent Liam Horgan were among the invited guests at the launch.
Cllr McGrath welcomed the new KYSS app and said it was important for young people to focus on positive mental health – and not just focus on physical health.
