‘Walk in My Shoes’ began when a 16 year old said he wished his friends could put themselves in his shoes.
People throughout Ireland will do just that by stepping out of their comfort zone and wearing odd, funky or mismatched shoes to support vulnerable young adults in Ireland with mental health difficulties
‘Play in My Boots’ is an adaptation from St. Patrick’s Mental Health Foundation’s ‘Walk in My Shoes’ Campaign which began after a 16 year old said he wished his friends could put themselves in his shoes.
‘Play in My Boots’ was established in 2014, by St. Patrick’s Mental Health Foundation and the GAA as a mental health resource for players, coaches, clubs and communities.
