Hot air balloons stir mental health debate

WEXFORD-based counselling and psychotherapy service It's Good 2 Talk has unveiled a plan to get Wexford people talking about mental health as part of the nationwide Green Ribbon campaign to encourage open discussion on mental health.

It's Good 2 Talk have enlisted the support of the Irish Ballooning Association to inflate hot air balloons in Wexford Town toward the end of May in an initiative that is sure to turn heads and spark discussion of mental health.

Founder of the It's Good 2 Talk Organisation, Eamonn Doran said, 'The balloons will be inflated in the town as a surprise scene in support of the Green Ribbon campaign and for the Wexford Community to enjoy'.

Throughout May, 150,000 ribbons will be distributed nationwide and free of charge and in conjunction with various community events with the aim of sparking a national conversation about mental health in Ireland's boardrooms, break-rooms, chat rooms, clubhouses, arts venues, college campuses and around kitchen tables.
