#MindYourSelfie sees us sharing photographs and offering free tools to promote positive mental health for everyone in the community, and especially young people.

What do you do to #MindYourSelfie?

Every year on #MindYourSelfie Day, we want as many people as possible to see and use the #MindYourSelfie hashtag to raise awareness about the importance of looking after our mental health.

The day also marks the launch of a new wellbeing support, which, over the years, has included everything from Wellness Journals and mindfulness colouring sheets to eBooks and classroom film guides.

#MindYourSelfie Day 2021

Our most recent #MindYourSelfie Day took place on Thursday, 27 May 2021.

Our world has changed so much in the last year during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve moved through lockdowns, missed important life events, faced health concerns, and dealt with difficult feelings of fear, loneliness and grief. But we’re getting through it and, now, bright and more hopeful times lie ahead – and we celebrated this with you.

In 2021, we wanted to start a conversation about how you’ve learned to #MindYourSelfie in the last year. So, on 27 May, you hopped on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, sharing your photographs and telling us about the people, places and things that have helped you to stay calm and resilient during the most difficult times. 

We also hosted an online event, exploring the learnings we can take from the last year and the tools we can use to prepare for coming out of lockdown. We were joined by representatives from some of Ireland’s top youth organisations, interest groups and mental health groups, including BelongTo, SpunOut, the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, Comhairle na nÓg, St Patrick's Mental Health Services and more.
