More talk, more action about mental health
Today the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) launches their national campaign ‘More Talk, More Action’ with former rugby star and mental health advocate, Alan Quinlan. The aim is to get Irish students talking about mental health.
Chats for change
USI are partnering with Lyons Tea, See Change and St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, to give out thousands of “Chats for Change” packs across college campuses nationwide. These include teabags and banner pens with tips on ways to start mental health conversations and contacts for useful support services.
