Each year See Change rolls out a month long national Green Ribbon Campaign to encourage people in Ireland to End Mental Health Stigma. The Green Ribbon campaign aims to get as many people as possible talking about mental health to help end stigma and discrimination.
This year the Green Ribbon campaign is online. Here’s what you can do to support it:
Wear the Green Ribbon
Pick up a Green Ribbon during the campaign at your nearby Boots Stores, Eir Stores and AIB branches as a symbol for starting conversation about mental health. Keep an eye out for ribbons in your local community.
Support the campaign online via social media
Social Media is a great way of keeping conversations going and spreading awareness. If you are hosting an event online, sharing a story or wearing a ribbon, be sure to snap a picture and post it online using the hashtags #GreenRibbonIRL #EndTheStigma.
