This is Me – in the City:
The Green Ribbon Campaign

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

The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, alongside This is Me – in the City, is running the Green Ribbon Campaign to help #endthestigma of mental health for the second year running from 8 - 14 May 2018, building on the inspiring impact of This is Me - in the City.

We are asking organisations to invite their employees to wear a green ribbon as a visible sign of support and to help destigmatise mental health by:

  • Creating a visible movement of support for ending the stigma
  • Showing those struggling that there is support and they are not alone
  • Demonstrating the level of support for this issue in your organisation
  • Encouraging people to share their story and to create an inclusive cultures workplace.

Join this exciting City-wide movement!

The green ribbons will be supplied with a backing card with details of the campaign. All we ask is for you to cover the costs of 35p per ribbon plus postage.

We carried out some market research with over 60 companies to develop the campaign

  • 100% of organisations surveyed said they would consider rolling out the green ribbon in their organisations.
  • 97% of organisations surveyed said the green ribbon will show employees who have mental health problems that colleagues do care and want to support them.
  • 92% of organisations surveyed said they would use the ribbons to help promote their This is Me activity.
  • 74% think it amplifies the messages of:
    - reducing the stigma of mental health 
    - dispelling the myths around mental health in the workplace
    - building inclusive workplace cultures to improve employee wellbeing.
