Each year, See Change roll 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. By wearing the Green Ribbon – an international symbol for mental health awareness – we show our commitment to influencing positive change.
We do not need to be an expert to start talking about mental health, nor do we have to have all the answers. Sometimes the most helpful thing we can do is to let someone know you are there for them by simply listening.
With support from Monaghan and Cavan Health & Wellbeing Committees, the county senior football squads from both counties lent their support to this very valuable campaign. It has always been important to reach out to others, and now more so than ever we are encouraged to pick-up the phone, write a letter, or to connect with others in whatever way we safely can.
