Imagine seeing thousands demonstrating their commitment to help #endthestigma during Mental Health Awareness Week by wearing a green ribbon.

The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, as part of This is Me, runs the Green Ribbon Campaign to help #endthestigma of mental health, building on the inspiring impact of This is Me storytelling.

Sometimes organisations aren’t ready for storytelling so you don’t have to have run This is Me to wear a green ribbon. All we ask is that you help us raise awareness to #endthestigma!
