Green Ribbon campaign tackles mental health stigma

By 15th September 2022No Comments

Shame can negatively impact a person with a #mentalhealth difficulty, making them feel like they are not ‘smart’ enough, ‘strong enough’ or ‘worthy’ of support.

See Change’s #GreenRibbonIRL campaign aims to tackle the #mentalhealth, stigma and shame people still experience.

A month-long initiative, the Green Ribbon campaign aims to get as many people as possible talking about mental health 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.

The campaign is now in its third week and is now focusing on the theme of “What Shame Feels Like”.
