This talk, on ‘Bully proof kids: raising happy kids in an anxious world’, is part of the Healthy Ireland at your Library initiative and will take place in the library’s event space at 7pm. The talk is sure to be of great interest to parents, educators and young people who work, with, know of, or are affected themselves by bullying behaviour, both on line or in daily life. 

Stella O’Malley is a psychotherapist, bestselling author, and public speaker. Much of Stella’s counselling and writing focuses on mental health and the importance of well-being. She is a regular contributor to Newstalk radio and the Irish Independent.  

Stella's first highly acclaimed book, ‘Cotton Wool Kids’, was released in 2015 and her bestseller 'Bully-Proof Kids: Practical tools to help kids grow up confident, resilient and strong' was released in 2017. Stella is currently working on her new book ‘Fragile': Why are we feeling more anxious and overwhelmed than ever before’, which focuses on overcoming anxiety and will be released by Gill Books in 2019. 

The talk will take place at Johnston Central Library at 7pm. All are welcome. Healthy Ireland at your Library is a national framework for action to improve the health and wellbeing of Ireland over the coming generation. As part of this programme Cavan County Library Service provides a range of resources, services and support to users and communities throughout Cavan, with a focus on physical health, mental health and health literacy.
