The Great Big Purple Picnic 2023

Action Mental Health needs your help between 15th and 21st May 2023. Host a picnic for your school class, community group, business colleagues or even friends and family – and collect donations for us as your local mental health charity.

By taking part you are already taking action on mental health as getting outdoors, being active and socialising can be a great benefit to our mental health. Fresh air, lovely food and being in company can go a long way to helping us overcome the daily stresses of life, so we are encouraging everyone, to stop, take a break, enjoy nature and spending time with others, while also taking stock of our own mental health.

By hosting your very own ‘Great Big Purple Picnic’ you will not only be helping us to raise awareness of positive mental health in Northern Ireland, you will also be raising vital funds to support our work across the country.

* Great Big Purple Picnic takes place during Mental Health Awareness Week. Mental Health Awareness Week The theme for the week, this year, is anxiety. We will be focusing on ways to manage anxiety during Mental Health Awareness Week, so please keep an eye on our social media channels that week.
