Now That You Have Connected, Stay connected
We have really enjoyed all the fantastic submissions already received and would like to challenge you again to share your ideas. We are hosting an online campaign to engage people with an intellectual disability on what being healthy means to them. This campaign will be shared through our website, Instagram account (@tcaid2020) and Twitter channel (@gethealthwiseID). From your entries, we will be creating a collage of ideas.Get Wise About Your Health is a project at Trinity College Dublin and is funded by the European Institute of Technology. The aim is to encourage people with an intellectual disability to better understand their health and provides activities to support well-being. Here's our next Get Wise About Your Health Challenge:

Please encourage individuals who access your service to take part in this campaign and submit as many pieces of work as they wish. There is no limit to the number of pieces an individual can submit, nor is it a competition. Anyone who submits a piece of work will receive an online certificate of participation and have their creation shared on the Trinity Centre for Ageing and Intellectual Disability website and social media channels. The certificates will be sent to all participants after the closing date.
We will be engaging with participants throughout the campaign, commenting on their creations and expressing thanks for sharing their work. We will also be sharing positive comments via our social media channels and hosting an online social gathering at the end of the Get Wise About Your Health project. Each month, we will introduce a theme for people to think about. It is our hope that this campaign will empower people with an intellectual disability to think about their health.
