Each year See Change roll out a month long national Green Ribbon Campaign to encourage people in Ireland to End Mental Health Stigma.
Stigma is a barrier to recovery for many people but with your help, our ambassadors and 100+ partner organisations, we can work together to put a stop to stigma.
Hundreds of thousands of green ribbons are distributed nationwide and free of charge as a visual symbol to end the stigma surrounding mental health difficulties.
Research conducted in 2017’s by See Change showed that 4 in 10 people would conceal a mental health difficulty from family, friends or colleagues.
You don’t need to be an expert to start talking about mental health or have all the answers. Sometimes the most helpful thing you can do is to let someone know you are there for them and simply listen.
What can I do to support Green Ribbon?
Wear the Green Ribbon
Pick up a Green Ribbon during May each year at your local Irish Rail station, Boots Stores, Eir Stores, AIB branches, and participating Libraries as a symbol for starting conversation about mental health.
Download our Supporters pack
To help show your support for the campaign, we have created a supporter’s pack. In the supporters pack you will find a range of resources that can be used during the campaign, including a ‘How to’ guide with suggestions of events that can be organised.
All the materials in the pack can be printed and used at any event you may be organising.
Social Media is a great way of keeping conversations going and spreading awareness. If you are hosting an event, sharing a story or handing out ribbons be sure to snap a picture and post it online using the hashtags
Time to Talk
Each year See Change nominates a day during May as our National ‘Time to Talk’ Day. On this day we encourage people to use their social media presence and encourage positive conversations about mental health online using #TimeToTalk
