Celebrating mental health awareness

The Mission Possible awards celebrate the proactive, inclusive initiatives running in schools to promote awareness of and confront stigma around mental health.

Teachers can submit their projects under one of three categories – Best Standalone Project, Most Creative Idea and Best Programme Activity – before 5pm on 26 March to be in with a chance to win a €600 prize for their school. One primary school and one secondary school will take home this top prize in each category, with every participating school also receiving a certificate.

The six winning schools will be revealed in a virtual ceremony on Wednesday, 21 April.
