EVE Estuary is also…Happy!!!

image001 (10) (1)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.

EVE Estuary is also…..Happy! from EVE Estuary on Vimeo.

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.
