2023 Hello How Are You? campaign begins

By 30th March 2023No Comments

Today, Thursday, March 30, sees the launch of the 2023 Hello How Are You? campaign.

This initiative is all about connection and engaging in open conversations about mental health.

The campaign asks individuals, communities, workplaces, friends & family to say Hello and ask the question ‘How Are You?’ in a meaningful way.

Asking this small question and having one conversation can make a real difference in someone’s life.

Creating, maintaining and staying connected with others helps tackle loneliness, creates a sense of belonging and purpose and builds relationships.

You don’t need to be an expert to have a meaningful conversation. By using the HELLO Steps you can feel supported in asking the question. Let’s make saying Hello and asking How Are You? an everyday question that keeps us connected.

H is for Hello, E is for Engage, L is for Listen, L is for Learn, O is for Options.
Established in 2015, this campaign destigmatizes attitudes towards mental health by educating and opening conversations on the topic.
Now coordinated by Mental Health Ireland, it is anticipated that the Hello How Are You? campaign will:

  • Improve awareness & understanding of mental health
