Green Ribbon

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 – you show you are committed to influencing positive change. 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. Let people know you are open to having a conversation by wearing the green ribbon.

To place a green ribbon order, please email with your name, address (including Eircode), mobile number, email address & quantity (1 pack = 100 ribbons)

What is the theme of Green Ribbon 2021?


The theme of Green Ribbon 2021 is all about inclusion. Throughout the campaign, we will be exploring the topic of exclusion, where it shows up in society and what people can do to become more inclusive.
