Mayo How R U? Launch

Posted in Connect on October 8, 2019.


Mayo Mental Health Fair in partnership with Mayo Mental Health Association and Midwest Radio will be launching Mayo How R U? from 9am -1pm on, October 10th World Mental Health Day in Market Square, Castlebar and we are inviting you to join us.

Mayo How R U is the latest powerful campaign to be launched by the Mayo Mental Health Fair committee. The “Hello Mayo, How R U?” campaign encourages asking neighbours, friends, family members and colleagues: “How RU?” in a meaningful way.

The campaign in an effort to reach out to people, make face to face contact and give them an opportunity to “drop the mask” and reveal their true feelings when asked the question, “how are you?” The aim of the campaign is to help someone who may be struggling.

Please come along to Market Square from 9am to 1pm on Thursday October 10th and chat to our volunteers. They will all be wearing our signature green t-shirts and handing out the Hello Mayo, How R U conversation cards. There will be a special broadcast from Midwest Radio’s Tommy Marren talk show, from 9am to 11am.

If you are interested in training as a Mayo How R U ambassadors our volunteers will be on hand to give details of how you can go about it. We are hoping every shop, business and individual up and down the length and breadth of Mayo will get involved to support this campaign by putting the Mayo How R U signs in their windows or by coming along and training up as ambassadors so that they can run the campaign in their own town or village. It could run as Achill How R U? Belmullet How R U? Westport How R U? etc..”
