Mental Health Ireland supports See Change’s Green Ribbon Campaign every May. The campaign promotes the Green Ribbon, encouraging people in Ireland to End Mental Health Stigma.
500,000 Green Ribbons are dispatched all across Ireland each May, available free of charge in all major Irish Rail stations, Boots Pharmacies, Eir Stores, AIB branches and other workplaces.
Research conducted in 2017 by See Change found that 4 in 10 people would conceal a mental health difficulty from family, friends or colleagues.
You can find all of the Green Ribbon events taking place during the month of May here
Each May Mental Health Ireland partner with SeeChange, the IFA and Coilte to GET WALKING, GET TALKING at the Talk & Walk events around Ireland.
Talk and Walk events encourage people to take time out of their busy lives and participate in a group walk in nature. The walks support the campaign to change minds about mental health – one conversation at a time.
Walk locations and other Green Ribbon events will be listed here in March.
