See Change rolls out judgement-themed 2023 communication plan

By 14th February 2023No Comments

See Change – Ireland’s organisation dedicated to ending mental health stigma – has selected judgement as the theme of its communications plan for 2023.

The organisation – which is responsible for rolling out the annual Green Ribbon mental health awareness campaign – will this year explore judgement in terms of having a mental health difficulty/illness, addressing the following, across different monthly themes:

• What is judgement?
• Why and how we judge ourselves?
• Why and how we judge others – whether we do it consciously or subconsciously?
• The feelings of being judged and judging others?
• The behaviours of being judged and judging others?
• What we can all do to help end the unfair judgement of ourselves and others?

Throughout the month of February See Change’s communications will challenge us to discover our own judgement while March will examine the judgement of women.

See Change also plans to host one in-person event per quarter throughout 2023 in the style of a townhall or panel discussion. The aim is to run one event per province across the year commencing with the west of Ireland in March.

The events will be open to the general public to attend and will be hosted by See Change Programmes Leader, Barbara Brennan, who will be joined by relevant people in the local area.

The See Change team plans to work closely with the Resource Officers for Suicide Prevention in each of these locations in order to make these events as successful as possible and on the Green Ribbon 2023 campaign.

See Change currently has 60+ Ambassadors across the country who are trained to responsibly tell their story about living with a mental health difficulty through ambassador talks and stigma presentations.

Ambassadors are available to speak all year round. To book a See Change Ambassador for a Lived Experience Talk or Stigma Presentation, email
