This Friday 16th September, See Change will be taking conversation of mental health to the streets as part of “Dublin Park(ing) Day” .
As part of this global Park(ing) Day experiment in reclaiming public space to create more people-friendly streets and along with 30 locations around Dublin, See Change will transform a parking space on Camden Street, into a temporary public park featuring a Garden Tea Party scene.
The space will offer people a chance to take time out and spark open discussion of mental health. The See Change Garden Tea Party will feature a Conversation Tree where people can hang a positive message about mental health in person or on social media. See Change will also distribute a ‘Grow your own conversation’ pack which contains information about mental health supports and sunflower seeds. See Change hope to communicate to the public that just like nurturing a plant, we all have to take steps to look after our mental health.
Everyone can play their part in this movement for openness and conversation around mental health by coming down to chat to the See Change PARK(ing) Day team at Camden St on Friday 16th September or starting your own conversation on See Change’s Twitter, facebook page or tweeting using the #SeeChangePARKing hashtag.
