About the campaign
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Government Action Plan acknowledged the importance of people maintaining their wellbeing and resilience to help see them through this unprecedented and unique challenge.
The Department of Health and the HSE, in collaboration with key cross-government and cross-sectoral partners, have developed this mental wellbeing campaign where you will find lots of advice and tips on how you can look after your mental wellbeing, stay active and stay connected.
What this is about
In This Together draws together a huge range of activities that you can pursue in your home or your locality, by yourself or with family members or with friends online. There are ideas and activities for people of all ages.
The campaign provides tips and advice from cross-government and Healthy Ireland partners on topics such as physical activity, parenting, coping with daily routines, supporting the ‘cocooned’ and getting involved in the community solidarity efforts.
This campaign is about uniting all of us. Bringing us together in the name of wellbeing to support everybody.
The campaign emphasises the importance of collective support and staying connected to others, and while all of us are experiencing different concerns, it highlights:“no matter what you’re going through, let’s stay connected and make it through, together.” # InThisTogether
