Lunchtime Seminar Series With FAMILES Support Limerick

We’re delighted to announce that this semester we will have a series of Free lunchtime seminars here at ICHAS. First up is FAMILES Support Limerick. This will take place on Thursday, February 6th at 1 pm in Room 10 at our campus in Limerick.

What do FAMILES do?

FAMILES stands for Families and Men In Life Experiencing Separation and is a support & information group is based  in Limerick. The group helps people who are separating. They are a specialist group primarily for men but they also support each family member.

By providing the service to family members it creates a holistic effect on the members. Also, working together brings about a better outcome post divorce and separation. 

Statistics have shown a big increase in suicide in the region and family breakups play a part in this. FAMILES work together with many recognized state and private qualified and accredited professionals already supporting the community.
