Walk in My Shoes
This year, Bláthnaid joined U2's Adam Clayton as an ambassador for Walk in My Shoes - a mental health awareness and education campaign of St. Patrick's Mental Health Services.
Bláthnaid and Adam will join up with Ireland's top bloggers and influencers for the #MindYourSelfie campaign on March 31st to launch their exciting new mental health activity pack for primary and secondary schools across Ireland which will include interactive mental health activities that teachers can use in the classroom. You can download the packs here.
Ambassador Bláthnaid says the packs are ideal for the classroom: "In the packs, you'll get a D.I.Y origami game, which we all played as kids but with a positive mental health twist.
"Young people are encouraged to support, compliment and boost one another's confidence through the game. I love that it get's students to be creative, and embracing your creative side has proven to help with your positive mental health."
Speaking about the campaign, the 2fm presenter said she was "delighted" to come on board as an Ambassador for Walk in My Shoes.
"I was aware of the initiative over the last few years with the likes of Adam Clayton being an Ambassador too.
"Mental health is something that everyone struggles with, some more than others, but the important thing is to firstly identify it and then to know that you can get help."
"The #MindYourSelfie campaign is great because we take selfies almost every day, so what a great way to raise awareness for this very worthwhile cause posting a selfie and using the hashtag #MindYourSelfie while also encouraging teachers to download the packs and use them in their classrooms with their students."
