Following on from the success of the BooStress implementation activities in Ireland, FIPL have taken steps to mainstream the BooStress training package through our outreach work in the community. This programme will be piloted in Virginia first, but will look to expand to our community outreach office in Ballyjamesduff in the New Year. So, what can BooStress offer residents of Virginia? In the coming months, we will provide training in the areas of stress management and relaxation techniques to support local employees and employers to adopt positive habits and routines to support stress management.

Informal training sessions will be held in our office on Main Street, Virginia, and will be in the areas of: mindfulness, meditation, interpreting stress and identifying triggers, and breathing techniques for Stress Reduction. The sessions will be facilitated by local practitioners, and those who attend will be invited to use the BooStress online portal to further develop their skills.
