Mission Possible

Our Mission Possible school achievement awards recognise the roles our schools play in promoting positive mental health.

These awards celebrate the different projects and supports in primary and secondary schools across Ireland to raise awareness of mental health and reduce stigma in school and the community.

To take part in the awards, this year, we are asking schools to create a “Mission Possible Wellbeing Wall”. We want to see all the great wellbeing supports and initiatives happening in your school, as well as the supports outside of your school that you are making your students aware of.

Creating your Mission Possible Wellbeing Wall

Creating your Mission Possible Wellbeing Wall

Getting involved is easy!

You can see a sample Mission Possible Wellbeing Wall here.

To get started, you simply need to register for your Mission Possible Wellbeing Wall pack, which we will post out to your school. This will include a Mission Possible banner,  and other materials which you can use to decorate your wall. You can email our Walk in My Shoes (WIMS) team here at info@walkinmyshoes.ie to register for your pack by Friday, 6 October.

Register for a pack

After you get your pack:

  • Pick a central location in your school to create the wall
  • Decide on your school’s approach to building your wall display (such as assigning students, classes, or a wellbeing committee to work on the project)
  • Divide your Mission Possible Wellbeing Wall into at least three sections, including the headings below, and show the Mission Possible banner on the wall
    • Wellbeing supports in our school
    • Wellbeing initiatives in our school
    • Wellbeing supports available outside of our school
  • Be creative in showcasing the great work your school does to promote positive mental health and wellbeing!
