A free event on the management of stress and other mental health issues was conducted by one of the participating authors of the forthcoming Gibraltar Literary Festival last month.
Paula Byrne, head of the Relit charity dedicated to the treatment of stress, anxiety and mental health issues through the reading of poetry, held a ‘healing session’ at the John Mackintosh Hall.

She spoke about her successful biography on former President JF Kennedy’s sister Kathleen ‘Kick’ Kennedy. Byrne said that the greater understanding and treatment of mental health problems is currently a burning issue in modern day societies.
Minister for Tourism Samantha Sacramento welcomed the addition of another event dealing specifically with mental health issues.

“We are very pleased that an established author like Paula Byrne has offered to carry out a session to assist stress sufferers in the management of their condition, during the Literary Festival,” she said. “Stress and other related mental health conditions are a common affliction and it is positive that we are having an event giving people practical advice and guidance on how to deal with the problem.”
