Raising Mental Health Awareness

Walk in My Shoes is a St Patrick’s Mental Health Services’ campaign, focusing on mental health education and awareness by promoting mental health and wellbeing in schools, colleges, workplace and communities.

Do you or someone you know experience mental health difficulties?

Many people with mental health difficulties can wait years before seeking support. Every day you live with a condition that is treatable, no matter what stage it’s at, is a day you haven’t lived to its fullest. You can change this.
It’s never too late or too early to seek support from people who have the knowledge and skills that can empower you to enjoy life again.
You are not alone, we are here to support you every step of the way.
