The Donegal GAA Health & Wellbeing Committee in association with the Donegal Youth Service asks you to support and participate in their annual Mental Health Awareness Campaign as part of international World Mental Health day.
The campaign aims to send out a simple but important message around minding your mental health and that of your family, friend’s colleagues and community. All too often in this busy and hectic world we tend to overlook the simple things that can make a difference to minding our mental health
The 4 Ls message
Listen, out for our family, friends, neighbours, community and be available to them in a time of need
Look, out for each other, the young, and the elderly those who are vulnerable, those living alone, those who are being bullied and those who might be sad
Laughter, laugh at ourselves, laugh with others, life can be serious but your smile could warm up someone’s day.
Link up, stop talking about it and go and do it. Make that link, connection, phone call, text, e mail, card, or better still a visit from you
Our simple message is part of international world mental health day and recommended for everyday use.
Put the 4Ls into practice today and start making a difference to all our mental health.
The GAA and the Samaritans have recently celebrated five years of working together to tackle problems of mental health and more can be read about this partnership by following the link below.
