Moodwatchers comes to Roscommon

Well-known psychologist Shane Martin brings his Moodwatchers one-day seminar to Roscommon on Saturday 30th June, taking place in Hannon’s Hotel from 10 am - 3.30 pm.

  Shane attracted a large crowd on his last visit to Roscommon in March and as a guest of Roscommon Mental Health Association he gave a public address in the Convent of Mercy on the need for us all to harness our strengths during challenging times.

  This upcoming seminar provides an opportunity for a more detailed focus on how we can embrace a better quality of life. It is open to the general public. The first part of the day will focus on the psychology of health and in the afternoon the science of happiness will be explored. Evidence-based strategies linked to greater health and happiness will be taught. 

  We are living in very challenging times and the recession is impacting on people’s lives in a very real way. As it dominates our media, many thousands of people are experiencing higher levels of stress. In times like these we need to come together and learn how to be mentally resilient. The content of the seminar will prove to be exceptionally relevant to everyone in the community.

  Shane Martin is a psychologist dedicated to teaching people how to be healthier and happier. His Moodwatchers course has been delivered at community venues throughout the country. He mixes hope with humour in his presentations and he should have words of wisdom and inspiration for everyone. He passionately believes in everyone’s ability to embrace a better quality of life. The seminar will outline ways in which we can harness our strengths to cope better in challenge and become happier in ourselves. 

  It’s an opportunity that should not be missed as we all need to ‘mind’ ourselves when challenged and one of the first steps in this process is education. The cost of the seminar is €50, which is inclusive of materials. Limited places are available and it is important to book as soon as possible by phoning 086-7921804 or emailing The brochure and registration form are downloadable from the website
