Mental Health Ireland - Hello, How are you? March 30, 2023
Hello, How Are You? is a campaign about connecting with those around us and engaging in open conversations about mental health. It’s about asking the question, ‘How Are You?’ with meaning and really listening to the response.
The campaign asks individuals, communities, workplaces, friends & family to say "Hello" and ask the question ‘How Are You?’ in a meaningful way. Asking this small question and having one conversation can make a real difference in someone’s life. Creating, maintaining and staying connected with others helps tackle loneliness, creates a sense of belonging and purpose and builds relationships.
You don’t need to be an expert to have a meaningful conversation. By using the HELLO Steps (H - Hello; E - Engage; L - Listen; L - Learn; O - Options) you can feel supported in asking the question. Let’s make saying "Hello" and asking "How Are You?" an everyday question that keeps us connected.
