Share your story to support others during the COVID-19 pandemic

We want to hear what you’re doing to support your physical and mental health, and to help others

Written by spunout


It’s difficult to avoid news about the coronavirus, and constant updates about cases in Ireland and abroad. Schools and colleges have closed until March 29th as a precaution, and many other businesses are closing too.

With many people staying at home and avoiding social contact, it can be a difficult time for many people. We’d love to hear from young people across Ireland on how you can support yourself, your friends and your family. There are things we can all do to support our mental and physical health, as well support others who may be struggling with the uncertainty.

Share your story

  • What are you doing to support your mental health during this crisis?
  • What are you doing to support your physical health?
  • How are you dealing with worry around Coronavirus?
  • Any advice for others who are working from home for the foreseeable future?
  • Are you unsure how this will impact your job? What are your feelings on this?

We believe that young people across Ireland can help support each other by sharing stories, lived experiences, advice and opinions. If you’re between 16 and 25 years old and living in Ireland, we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in writing an article or making a video.

Do I need writing experience?

You do not need any writing experience. We’ll help you out every step of the way giving you feedback and suggestions for your piece. Your piece will be posted on and our social media so that thousands of young people across Ireland will feel more supported and encouraged to seek help.
