Kerry Mental Health Association has released three videos to promote mental well-being through the art of creating floral decorations at home.

The charity has teamed-up with Tralee-based Michelle McElligott who creates stunning floral arrangements as a hobby, has given her time to demonstrate, on video, how to make floral arrangements at home, school or in community and mental health day centres.

“There are simple things we can do as part of our daily life to protect our mental health," General Manager of Kerry Mental Health Association, John Drummey, said.

"Each of the Five Ways To Wellbeing – Connect | Be Active | Take Notice | Keep Learning | Give – can play a key part in helping each of us mind our mental health. Last Christmas we promoted this through the art of baking while this year, we’re embracing the fun and challenges associated with creating floral decorations. We are grateful to Michelle McElligott for giving her time to share her talent with viewers who will enjoy recreating her arrangements.”

In episode one, Michelle shows how to make a beautiful wreath/garland for the front door, the second is a novel Christmas cracker and the third is a table candle decoration.

All three videos can be viewed on Kerry Mental Health Association's Facebook page, Twitter feed and on the following YouTube links:
