The annual See Change Green Ribbon campaign aims to spread awareness about all mental health difficulties to help end mental health stigma and discrimination.
This year, we are celebrating 11 years of the Green Ribbon campaign, which will run across the month of September. Across the month, See Change will be hosting events, running social media campaigns and supporting workplaces, organisations and the general public across Ireland to start having open and honest conversations about mental health.

The Green Ribbon theme for 2023 is judgement. Across the month, See Change will explore what mental health judgement is, where it shows up across society, how judgement impacts people with mental health difficulties, and what we call all do to help end the unfair judgement of ourselves and others.
Keep an eye on our social media channels to learn about shame and the negative impacts it can have on people with mental health difficulties.
What is judgement
During this week, we will look at what judgement is in the context of having a mental health difficulty. We will explore why and how we judge others (consciously or subconsciously).

Where judgement shows up in society
What shame feels like
The focus for this week will be on what it feels like to be judged. We will be sharing stories from people with lived experience of mental health judgement, stigma and discrimination and how it made them feel from a mental health perspective.
Behaviours of judgement
A week to see change – what is the antidote to shame?
For our final week, we will be focusing on the practical things that we can all do to help end mental health judgement. We will also launch our 2023 Pass the Ribbon video this week.
