Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 begins on May 18.
As part of the week, The Green Ribbon campaign is running to #endthestigma around mental health in the workplace.
People are being encouraged to digitally share green ribbons to show their support for ending the stigma around mental health.
The impact of COVID-19 means that mental health is more important than ever.
Through the Green Ribbon campaign, the organisers want to enable organisations to support their people with their wellbeing. The physical community that the Green Ribbon campaign usually builds is not possible due to social distancing, but they think it is important that mental health is still visible, so they want to create a virtual movement of support.
As a result they have created materials and assets that can help you spread the Green Ribbon message online an they can be found here
The Green Ribbons:
• Create a visible movement of support for ending the stigma.
• Show those struggling that there is support and that they are not alone.
• Demonstrate the level of support for wellbeing within your workplace.
• Encourage people to share their story to create inclusive workplace cultures.
