Mental Health Ireland celebrates World Mental Health Day

Mental Health Ireland celebrates World Mental Health Day with local events for the whole community to enjoy

'Plan to Protect' your mental health & wellbeing

World Mental Health Day is celebrated worldwide on the 10th of October. It is an opportunity to bring awareness to mental health on an international, national and local scale, informing and educating people about mental health and to work towards ending the stigma and create a non-judgemental space for people struggling with their mental health to open up and talk. If you are planning an event during Mental Health Week please download our Toolkit here! 

Mental Health Ireland’s vision is for an Ireland where mental health is valued as being an essential part of personal wellbeing and the health of the nation.  Rather than focusing on mental and emotional pain as something to be eradicated, we need to promote the message that it is normal and indeed natural to feel down at times, and that feeling vulnerable is an inherent part of being human. 

Mental Health Ireland will launch their ‘Plan to Protect your Mental Health & Wellbeing’campaign this Mental Health Week. It encourages everyone to become aware of their wellbeing by following five simple steps. These include Connecting with others, being Active on a daily basis, Taking Notice of what’s happening around you, to Keep Learning and to Give back to your community, friends or family. By monitoring our activities and actions in these areas of our daily lives we can see which areas we are doing well in and others we may need to concentrate on. 

Mental Health Ireland have 103 Mental Health Associations in communities all over Ireland. Each Association has developed a number of activities and events to celebrate World Mental Health Week between the 5th-12th October. Some of these activities include:

National Choral Singing Week in association with Mental Health Ireland. 

Sing out Loud, Sing out Strong – the Big Sing in The Helix on 5th October 7.30pm – tickets €16 are available here
