Green Ribbon Walks To Raise Mental Health Awareness

BITCI News - Apr 29, 2015

A month long Green Ribbon campaign is taking place during May 2015 to promote the Green Ribbon which is now the international symbol for mental health awareness and promote positive mental health.

Just like the pink ribbon became a symbol for breast cancer awareness the Green Ribbon has been established as the international symbol for mental health awareness and has been introduced to Ireland by See Change.

Coillte has collaborated with the IFA, See Change and Mental Health Ireland for a national programme of Green Ribbon Let’s Talk & Walk family friendly walks.

Walkers will be given free Green Ribbons to wear and are encouraged to wear them during the month of May to show their support for mental health awareness

Coillte invite you and your families to enjoy Green Exercise – Talk & Walk! Visit their website to find out the details of the walks.
