Green Ribbon campaign
Every year since elected I have promoted the Green Ribbon campaign in council among the staff and asked that the other 40 Councillors around Kildare to support and wear the Green Ribbon. The aim of the ribbon is to reduce stigma around Mental Health and to get people talking opening about Mental Health. The 100 year old Oak tree in Aras Cill Dara is also turned Green for the Month of May to promote awareness.
Darkness to Light
I have also taken part in the Darkness to Light runs and promote and support other walks and actives to help get people active and promote well being.
