Ian’s story – a case study
While looking for work in the charity and NGO sector, Ian came across an ad for an internship with ReachOut.com. After reading about our mission he became even more enthusiastic about the position, applied for it and was successful.
If Ian looks familiar, it may be because you met him at one of our community events over the past six months. Ian’s role was in community engagement and he brought ‘Note to Self’ to college campuses, conferences and seminars across Ireland.
On his internship with ReachOut, Ian says “It’s a great opportunity…ReachOut.com is still a young organisation. A lot is changing, so your ideas and passion can really feed into the shape of where ReachOut.com goes in the future.
“I’ve increased my own knowledge of mental health, from anxiety and depression to suicide… the gravity of issues and especially the links to young people are something I’ll always consider on a deeper level than before I came here. I’ll be more aware of my own mental health from now on too.”
