Iarnród Éireann supports Green Ribbon 2017

02 May 2017

May has been designated green ribbon month to encourage conversations about mental health

For the month of May, Iarnród Éireann will support See Change and its partner organisations in rolling out the fifth annual Green Ribbon campaign to get Ireland talking about mental health. 500,000 green ribbons will be distributed nationwide and free of charge in conjunction with hundreds of local and national events. Green Ribbons will be available in major railway stations across the country.

Mental Health advocacy groups will be at Connolly and Heuston station between 12:00 and 15:00 on 12th and 19th May respectively. Connolly and Heuston Station will light up green in support of the campaign for the month of May.

There will also be a distribution day at Pearse Station on 26th May. 

This May, the ask is simple - wear the Green Ribbon and show your support for ending the silence around mental health problems. Take two and start a conversation with someone about mental health! 

Remember to join the conversation on social media using #GreenRibbonIRL.
