For the entire month of May 2018 the national Green Ribbon Campaign will be encouraging the people of Ireland to help put an end to the stigma.
STIGMA IS THE GREATEST BARRIER TO RECOVERY! Meaning 4 in 10 people conceal a mental health difficulty from family/friends.
You don’t need to be an expert or know the answers, just reach out to family/friends – let them know your there for them and listen to what they have to say.
Green ribbons are available from today 1st May, they are free and readily available from Boots stores nationwide, Irish Rail and all EVE locations.
Events will be taking place throughout the month and we will keep you posted.
See Change have also launched a “What is Stigma?” brochure. Educate yourself this May – See-Change-What-is-Stigma-A5-brochure-HR
