Walk and Talk 2023 – “Creating hope through action”
Health and Social Care Trusts and PHA have worked in partnership to develop a campaign to encourage people across Northern Ireland to embrace and demonstrate the theme: Creating Hope, Through Action.
The campaign will run from 11th September -9th October 2023 to mark the period between World Suicide Prevention Day and World Mental Health Day. This year we are calling on people to ‘Walk & Talk’. Embracing the Take 5 messages to ‘Be Active’ and ‘Connect’.
Below are some resources for promoting Walk and Talk events on your social media and some suggested text you could include on your post. You can find more information on the ‘Walk & Talk 2023’ pages on www.mindingyourhead.info
