The Tourette Syndrome Association recently changed its name to TSI (Tourette Support Ireland). Our new website is almost ready to launch www.tsireland.ie.. This is one of our success stories following our National Conference in November 2009. Another success was the formation of network support grooups throughout Ireland. The official launch of TSI Munster will be held in the Silver Springs Hotel, Cork on Sunday, 19th of September 2010 starting at 2.00 p.m. It is an opportunity for parents, children and adults with TS to share information and support each other in a comfortable and non judgemental environment.
We would particularly like to invite those professionals i.e. Teachers, Social Workers, Medical Professionals who come in contact with people with TS to heighten awareness among the general community to allow them to empathise rather than sympathise with those people who have TS.
Guest speakers on the day, Tourette Support Ireland Chairperson, Carol Pitcher. Dr. Louise Connolly, Consultant Psychologist, CAMHS, City General Hospital, Cork will be there to facilitate a questions and answers session.
For more information on the group please contact 087 1702439 or email firstname.lastname@example.org - please place “Tourettes Support Munster” in the subject line of the mail. Admission is free and there will be complimentary tea and coffee.
