Sinn Féin TD and spokesperson for Mental Health Mary Lou McDonald has expressed her support for the launch of the Green Ribbon campaign by SeeChange this evening and encourages everybody to end the stigma around mental health by wearing the Green Ribbon.

Deputy McDonald said;

“I welcome the launch this evening by SeeChange of their annual Green Ribbon campaign.  I will be showing my support for this worthy campaign by wearing the Green Ribbon. I encourage as many people as possible to take this small step to help end the stigma around mental and wear the Green Ribbon during May.  Daily life brings so many stresses and strains that all go to affect the mental health of people.  This campaign encourages us to look out for each other, talk to each other whether it’s a family member or a friend because a problem shared is a problem halved.  

“We need to take care of our mental health.  We need to end the stigma around mental health.  The Green Ribbon campaign will help start conversations and raise awareness about mental health.  Wear a Green Ribbon this May.”
