EVE HSE’s ‘Flash Mob Freeze’ for the Green Ribbon Campaign 2015

The third annual Green Ribbon campaign took place during the month of May. It’s aim is to encourages a national conversation about mental health.

In a bid to help highlight the importance of this campaign the participants from EVE HSE services organised two ‘Flash Mob Freeze’ events in dublin; one on the southside of the city and the other on the northside.

Each performance was no more than ten minutes from start to finish and was accompanied by Focus Ireland’s ‘High Hopes Choir’ who sang the beautiful song ‘High Hopes’ by kodaline.

The idea was that by freezing for five minutes we would inspire and remind others to take time out to think about their own mental health.

After the performance we handed out green ribbons to highlight the message further.

We really hope that this helps to spread the Green Ribbon Campaign’s message for promoting open conversation about mental health and challenging the stigma of mental health problems.

We had so much fun at both of the EVE HSE’s ‘Flash Mob Freeze’ events in Dublin.

We would like to thank everyone that organized and performed in it.

tc1“When the choir started to sing that was our cue to freeze like statues. We practiced our freeze frame poses with Rachel all week. It was great fun to go into town and take apart in this.” – Chris O’Neill

“I enjoyed being a part of this performance. We had a great day even though it was raining. I’d love to do something like this again.” – Pauline Rush

“I enjoyed every minute of it! I thought that the idea was very unusual. The bit of rain, that we had, didn’t dampen our spirits. The other centres done really well too.” – Maureen Rooney

“I thought that it was absolutely brilliant!!!” – Suzanne HylandBlog-badge_gr
