Let’s Get Talking about Mental Health

May is Green Ribbon Month

Green_Ribbon1

Bluebird Care is supporting Green Ribbon Month with green ribbons being given out in our office in Wexford by Michael Corcoran and his team. They are also available from a list of outlets nationwide for free.

Find out more about how you can show your support here.

Watch a message from businesswoman and TV presenter Norah Casey.

 

See Change, the National Stigma Reduction Partnership and our 90 partner organisations are rolling out a month long national Green Ribbon Campaign to get people talking openly about mental health problems in May 2014.

More than 300,000 green ribbons will be distributed nationwide free of charge to spark a national conversation about mental health in boardrooms, break-rooms, chat rooms, clubhouses, arts venues, college campuses and around kitchen tables throughout Ireland. Our aim is to make the month of May every year synonymous with promoting open conversation of mental health and challenging the stigma of mental health problems.

Just like the pink ribbon has become a powerful symbol for breast cancer awareness, this lime green ribbon has been established in the US and beyond as the international symbol for challenging the stigma of mental health problems.

See Change is a growing partnership of 90 Irish organisations, volunteers and ambassadors working together to change attitudes and behaviours to mental health problems and end stigma.
