Funded by the HSE National Office of Suicide Prevention, the partnership is made up of over 100 Irish organisations and 60 ambassadors who work together to open minds about mental health problems, and end mental health stigma and discrimination.Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu said, “We know from evidence through the work of organisations like See Change, that speaking out about mental health helps to overturn generations of stigma by shifting outdated attitudes and challenging discrimination. We need to work together to make long lasting positive social change.”Green Ribbon will run virtual events throughout the month of October which will have an array of different speakers focusing on the workplace, the voices of lived experience, and partners of See Change, on the topics of discrimination, behaviour and societal change. You can find out more about these events on the See Change website and social media throughout the month.Recent research that was part of a survey launched in early 2020 as a collaboration between See Change and the YOULEAD group, based at NUI Galway. The primary aim of this research is to expand upon existing See Change data collected in 2017 (Millward Brown, K, 2017, p. 7) with a renewed focus on severe and enduring mental illness. Findings included;One out of five people (22%) would conceal mental ill health from their family78% of people would feel comfortable discussing mental ill health if a friend or family member asked.Over half ( 59%) of people would live with someone with a lived experience of a severe and enduring mental illness.Almost all of the people (94%)  would work with someone with a lived experience of a severe and enduring mental illness.44% of people would disclose personal experience of a severe and enduring mental illness to their work colleagues.Over a third (36%) of people would disclose personal experience of a severe and enduring mental illness to their human resources department.”While some of these figures show that people are more open to a conversation about mental health than they were ten years ago, the survey also showed that people did not have a real understanding of severe and enduring mental illness.Minister for Mental Health Mary Butler TD, said ““At a time when many people are experiencing mental health challenges in the face of Covid-19, it is more important than ever that people feel that they can reach out, to access the services and supports that they need, or simply to talk to family and friends.“Stigma remains a barrier to recovery for too many people and that is why I wholeheartedly welcome and fully support the Green Ribbon campaign, which has been for many years a symbol of hope to many in helping to start these conversations.” she said.After last year’s Green Ribbon campaign, 54% of survey participants strongly agreed that it is important to have open conversations about mental health. This is a significant increase compared to just 20% in 2018.Keynote speaker Dr Eddie Murphy said; “Mental wellbeing at home and in the workplace is helped by having open conversations with family, friends and colleagues, particularly during this difficult time.”Post Green Ribbon 2019:One fifth of people surveyed said they saw someone wearing a Green Ribbon.Four out of five (80%) of people surveyed as part of a general population survey heard more colleagues in work talking about mental health since the Green Ribbon campaign.81% of people surveyed were more comfortable in having a conversation about mental health with someone they knew.Over two thirds (69%) of people surveyed heard more family and friends talking about mental health since the Green Ribbon campaign.”See Change Co-ordinator Barbara Brennan, said of this year’s Green Ribbon, “While many people don’t stop to consider stigma or it’s impact, for some it has been a barrier to leading a regular life; one without prejudice, discrimination and fear.“Living with an illness is difficult enough, there is no need to add the weight of stigma to someone who is already struggling. Most people feed stigma, unknowingly, by living in fear of how to approach a mental health conversation, and of saying ‘the wrong thing’, Helping people understand that we all have ups and downs, and that by having more open conversations we can end mental health stigma and the burden it places on those who are the most vulnerable in our society, is at the heart of the Green Ribbon campaign.”Coinciding with the recent launch of See Change and Mental Health Ireland’s Living with Covid 19 Return to Work Guide, this year’s Green Ribbon campaign focuses on the importance of sharing how you really feel.See Change believe that our country is in need of conversations about mental health now more than ever, and the Green Ribbon has been a symbol of hope to many in helping start those conversations.     Everyone Can Get InvolvedThere is still time to order Green Ribbons by emailing [email protected] with your full name, delivery address (including eircode), contact number, email address and ribbon quantity, or by placing an order directly on the website www.seechange.ie .Alternatively, you can pick up a Green Ribbon during the campaign at your nearby Boots, AIB or Eir stores as a symbol for starting conversation about mental health.To help show your support for the campaign, See Change have created a downloadable supporters pack, which contains a range of resources such as posters, ribbon photo props, email and social media banners.

Lion’s den: Jeff Tambroni leaves a national powerhouse to take over a struggling Penn State program

first_imgJeff Tambroni laid out his message as clear as he possibly could. Binders were passed out to every Penn State player, 20 pages full of everything from academic and athletic expectations to how to maintain social well-being. A blueprint for success. Taking over a losing program, Tambroni knew he had to turn the previous coaching regime’s culture on its head. And it began with his first meeting with the Nittany Lions. ‘One of the things that we heard coming in here was that the culture just really needed to be shaken up, needed to be changed in a lot of ways,’ said Tambroni, who took over as PSU head coach this offseason after 11 years as head coach at Cornell. ‘We were meticulous in that message and very thankful that in the beginning we were able to map it out. ‘We needed to give these kids an idea of why we were there and what we were trying to accomplish to see who was on board.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Tambroni shocked the lacrosse world on June 17 when he left his head coaching position at Cornell to take over a Penn State team coming off a 2-11 season. The Nittany Lions were coached by Glenn Thiel for the last 33 seasons, but they made only two NCAA tournaments and never won a tournament game. Tambroni went 109-40 in 11 years at Cornell and took the Big Red to the NCAA championship game in 2009, where it lost to Syracuse. So when Tambroni took a less-than-prestigious Penn State job, it was a big surprise. Especially to the current Cornell head coach and former assistant under Tambroni, Ben DeLuca. Tambroni and DeLuca were at a lacrosse camp in Minnesota when Tambroni got a chance to talk to his former assistant about his decision. ‘I thought he might be kidding around with me or pulling my leg at first,’ DeLuca said. ‘But once I had a chance to speak with him about the different factors he considered that went into his decision, it made a little more sense to me.’ Tambroni actually turned down Penn State when the job was first offered to him this summer. After about three days of discussions with administrators from both athletic programs, he chose to stick with Cornell. He said he wasn’t in a place where he could see the potential to change the culture and program in State College, Pa., at that time. But a few days later, he heard from the Penn State athletic department again and decided to give it second thought. Then came the decision. Stick with a program he led to the NCAA final four in three of the past four seasons, or take over a program with minimal success and no tradition? He chose the latter. ‘I just felt at this stage in my career, what a great opportunity to take a step back and see if you can help guide, help build a program,’ Tambroni said. ‘Alongside your assistant coaches and a group of guys in an athletic department that stands for a lot of the same things Cornell did.’ The new head coach quickly got to work assembling a coaching staff that would be with him every step of the way. He hired two young assistant coaches, Chris Doctor and Peter Toner. Doctor was an assistant at Lafayette, where he guided a proficient offense that led the nation in goals per game in 2009. Toner was previously the defensive and recruiting coordinator at Bryant. Both assistants are young, eager coaches who believe in Tambroni’s message about changing the culture. And that’s necessary to turn around a program that has been stagnant for the better part of 33 years. Toner and Doctor both remember that first meeting Tambroni had with his players. Players’ eyes grew wide as their new coach spoke. Some nodded as Tambroni laid out his plan for turning Penn State into a respectable lacrosse program. And it affected Doctor just as much. ‘He was just excited and emotional,’ Doctor said. ‘That was the first time I was around him in that setting where he’s kind of raising his voice a little bit. ‘It gave me a little chill, I’m not going to lie. It amped me up to coach.’ It’s just as important to receive those feelings from his players. He tells his players they don’t always need to agree with him, Tambroni said, and he doesn’t have to agree with them. But when they step out of the locker room together, they need to be on the same page. Getting the understanding and confidence from his players has been especially difficult in this first year. Recruiting season for 2011 was long over when he took the job, so all of the current Nittany Lions were recruited by Thiel. And not all players have adjusted to the new regime. Some — Tambroni said a couple seniors — decided it wasn’t for them right away. He said others have been weeded out over the past couple of months. Overall, a ‘handful’ of players have left the program. ‘I said to our guys our time frame needs to be today,’ Tambroni said. ‘They need to think long and hard the moment their feet hit the ground in the morning about what they’re about to undertake during the day. … There were some non-negotiable things we talked about, and a couple guys decided they didn’t want to do it.’ The Nittany Lions lost their first exhibition game of the season, 7-4, to Johns Hopkins on Feb. 5. Tambroni looked at the positives, though. It was the first time he saw his team play with a high level of energy for 60 minutes straight. Winning will be a process. Tambroni said winning isn’t the main focus for 2011. But it will still be a focus. Tambroni expects to compete and to make the NCAA tournament down the line. But for now, the most important thing is making a losing culture believe it can win. ‘As far as doing our job, I don’t think that’s a three-, a five-, a 10-year job you have to wait for,’ Tambroni said. ‘I think we can do it today. … Our expectations are more based day to day, making these guys feel part of something special. ‘And if winning follows, which I think is kind of the next progression of building from within, I think that will happen.’ [email protected] Comments Published on February 16, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: [email protected] | @mark_cooperjrcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
