Scoil Chill Ruadhain were delighted to take part in #MindYourSelfie Day on Friday which is part of an information campaign by Walk In My Shoes regarding the importance of looking after our mental health.
Walk in My Shoes is a mental health awareness initiative by St Patrick’s Mental Health Services. Its new campaign, #MindYourSelfie, is a series of mental health information eBooks that will be available to primary and secondary schools, colleges, businesses and communities.
Sarah Surgenor, Head of Communications at St Patrick’s Mental Health Services said “This Friday, 8th April, we are asking all social media users to take a selfie and share it using the hashtag #MindYourSelfie and direct people to http://www.walkinmyshoes.ie to download the free mental health eBooks.”
Walk in My Shoes Ambassador Adam Clayton said “It is important to give young people the opportunity to talk about mental health in an informed, supportive environment. We developed the #MindYourSelfie eBook to provide a valuable and accessible resource for teachers in schools, colleges and businesses who are dealing with mental health issues every day.”
The eBook contains advice on ways to take care of our mental health, warning signs, helpline advice and causes of mental health problems.
