The Public Health Agency (PHA) is urging people to use Mental Health Awareness Week (8-14 May) to take time out to think about mental health and ‘Take 5 Steps to Wellbeing’.
More information on looking after your mental health and the support which is available across Northern Ireland can be found at www.mindingyourhead.info. In the Republic of Ireland, the annual May Green Ribbon campaign aims to get people talking openly about common mental health problems. This campaign promotes open conversation about mental health and it challenges the associated stigma that sometimes comes with it.
