Building on last year’s success, the six Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland have worked in partnership with the Public Health Agency (PHA) to develop a campaign that will encourage people across the region to embrace and demonstrate this year’s theme ‘Creating Hope Through Action’.
Thanks to everyone who got involved last year, we hope to continue this success with even more actions in 2022. We are inviting you to get involved in this year’s campaign which will run between 10 September (World Suicide Prevention Day) and 10 October (World Mental Health Day).
Here are a few suggestions on how you can get involved:
- Set up a ‘Camerados’ public living room – You can access a free pack and guidance to help you set up your Public Living Room in your local community.
- Organise a Coffee and Connect event – a really simple way to connect. A guide and some printable resources are available to get you started.
- Add to the Songs for Hope Playlist – Think of a song choice that makes you feel hopeful and share it as part of the campaign’s ‘Songs For Hope’ Playlist.
Further information on all of the above is available on the Minding Your Head website.
If you are organising an event and posting information on your social media channels, please use this year’s campaign tag to share and promote your event: #HopeThroughAction22
