Dublin Park(ing) Day 2013 -Bringing mental health conversation to the streets

 

Dublin Park(ing) Day 2013

This Friday 20th September, See Change will once again be taking conversation of mental health to the streets as part of Dublin’s third annual Park(ing) Day.

Take 1

As part of this global Park(ing) Day experiment in reclaiming public space to create more people-friendly streets  and along with 30 other locations around Dublin, See Change are transforming a parking space outside no. 130 St. Stephen’s Green into a temporary public park offering Dubliners a chance to take time out and spark open discussion of mental health.

Everyone can play their part in this movement for openness and conversation around mental health:

  • Come down to chat to the See Change Park(ing) Day team at no. 130 St. Stephen’s Green on Friday 20th anytime from 12 to 6pm.
  • Or start your own conversation on See Change’s ‘Make A Ripple’ portal, facebook page or tweeting using the #MakeARipple hashtag.
