Green Ribbon Campaign


A Green Ribbon Event was held in FAST to highlight mental health awareness month throughout Ireland.

It is estimated that 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health difficulty at some point in their life. All of us have mental health, and like our bodies, our minds can become unwell. Despite how common these issues are they often remain a secret, or are quickly "brushed under the carpet."

We invited both participants and service providers to discuss how stigma can have a detrimental effect not only for those living with mental illness, but for the larger community. By wearing our green ribbons and discussing these issues openly we hope to reduce loneliness, shame and discrimination. We were delighted to have strong attendance for our discussion which was followed by a relaxation session and hope to hold more events in the future.
