Green Ribbon Month – September 2022
See Change, Ireland’s national programme dedicated to ending mental health stigma and discrimination, is proud to announce that its 10th annual Green Ribbon campaign will take place during the month of September 2022.
The Green Ribbon campaign aims to get as many people as possible talking about mental health in order to help end stigma and discrimination. The theme for Green Ribbon 2022 is ‘Shame’ and the key message this year is that there is no shame in having a mental health difficulty.
Across the month, you can pick up a FREE Green Ribbon at participating Boots stores, Iarnród Éireann stations, AIB branches and eir stores, to show that you are open to having conversations about mental health.
Events are being scheduled nationally and locally in support of the Green Ribbon Campaign. See calendar for more details and find more information on https://seechange.ie/green-ribbon/.
