The Mayo GAA County Board in partnership with the Health Service Executive and Mindspace launched a positive mental health promotion partnership with the unveiling of a sign at MacHale Park. The aim of this initiative under the #littlethings campaign aims to encourage and facilitate people to develop and maintain positive mental health.
#littlethings is the national mental health and wellbeing campaign by the HSE's National Office for Suicide Prevention and a coalition of more than 25 partner organisations in Ireland. The #littlethings campaign highlights that we all experience difficult times in our lives, and that when we do; there are some evidence-based little things that can make a big difference to how we feel. These little things can help us to cope but there are also professional supports and services we can use if we need to, such as Mindspace or the Mayo Mental Health Services.
Frank Murphy, area manager, Mayo PCCC Services, said: “The #littlethings campaign helps to highlight the importance of protecting our mental health. We are delighted to take part in the development and rollout of this campaign with the Mayo GAA County Board and are proud of the partnership and commitment that has gone into the creation of these events. We fully support this effort to help promote positive mental health and reduce death by suicide.”
