As part of this months national Green Ribbon Campaign we here in HSE EVE Estuary decided to create our own version of Pharrell William’s ‘Happy’ music video.
This is a much loved song here in the centre by many of our participants and staff.
The song evokes such positive feelings and has inspired people to get up, dance and feel good about themselves.
We couldn’t think of a more appropriate way that we could spread the Green Ribbon Campaign’s message to start talking about and dealing with mental health problems.
This video was created as part of the ‘Visual and Performing Arts Module’ in HSE EVE Estuary.
Music by Pharrell Williams
Performed by participants of HSE EVE Estuary
Created and Edited by Rachel Kiernan
Special thanks to Pharrell William’s for creating and performing this uplifting song which started such an amazingly positive movement.
Here are some really nice quotes that we found about dancing and music which may also inspire you.
Here are more examples of how other people recreated this music video.
See Change, the National Stigma Reduction Partnership and our 90 partner organisations are rolling out a month long national Green Ribbon Campaign to get people talking openly about mental health problems in May 2014.
Its aim is to reduce stigma and challenge discrimination associated with mental health problems.
