Green Ribbon Month - Mental Health Awareness

Rainbow's 'Flash The 'Tache' campaign

Grab a 'tache and join the bash for mental health awareness.

As a relatively new Clubhouse Rainbow feel, “we have moved mountains and have already achieved so many small successes that we are truly on the road to greatness”. To aid mental health awareness we are running a campaign throughout Green Ribbon month called Flash the 'Tache campaign.

As one of the largest mental health services in the Ballyfermot area of Dublin, Rainbow wanted to bring an element of comic relief to the very serious issue.

Their idea is very simple, wear a 'tache take a snap, upload it on social media, #flasthetache and tag Rainbow Clubhouse.

“The opportunity we have to run this event will be a fantastic experience - personally, socially and educationally for everyone involved,”
said Alice Dodrill, Centre Manager. Alice added: “I would like to thank everyone, especially Brian Ormond and Kildare Rose contestant, Kayleigh Foley for becoming involved in this campaign to make more people aware of mental health issues and Clubhouse in general.”
