Adam Clayton has joined almost 30 Irish bloggers and celebrities who have shared selfies to launch a new campaign by Walk In My Shoes.
The #MindYourSelfie campaign is promoting a series of mental health information eBooks that will be available to schools, colleges, businesses and communities. A hard copy of the pack will also be sent to every school in Ireland.
Sarah Surgenor, head of communications at St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services, asks all social media users to take a selfie and share it using the hashtag #MindYourSelfie and direct people to the Walk In My Shoes site to download the free mental health eBooks.
“It is important to give young people the opportunity to talk about mental health in an informed, supportive environment,” Clayton, a Walk In My Shoes Ambassador, said. “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.
