Fintan Connolly

Director TakeTen (North Ireland)

As a Pharmacist, Fintan was intrigued by stress, particularly in children, As a parent of a child with a learning difficulty, Fintan wanted to find an intervention to help with the stress that his child encountered on a daily basis. The TakeTen programme is currently being used by over 95 schools in the UK,  teaching children how to manage their response to stress. It is also being used in the Oncology ward of the Royal Hospital for sick children in Belfast.
