One conversation at a time. Supporting friends and family with depression

Students and staff of NUI Galway are being asked to wear the Green Ribbon inMay and help raise awareness of mental health. Staff and students can pick up a free ribbon at caf├ęs around the University this month. NUI Galway and the Students' Union are supporting the national Green Ribbon campaign

You do not need to be an expert in mental health to help. Just remember to listen to any your friends and family who are having problems, check in with them to see there okay. Something as simple as that can be a great boost for people who are feeling down or depressed.
