What is the 'Hello, How Are You' Campaign?
Hello, How Are You? is a campaign about connection and engaging in open conversations about mental health. The campaign asks individuals, communities, workplaces, friends & family to say Hello and ask the question ‘How Are You?’ in a meaningful way. Asking this small question and having one conversation can make a real difference in someone’s life. Creating, maintaining and staying connected with others helps tackle loneliness, creates a sense of belonging and purpose and builds relationships.
You don’t need to be an expert to have a meaningful conversation. By using the HELLO Steps you can feel supported in asking the question. Let’s make saying Hello and asking How Are You? an everyday question that keeps us connected.
Impact & Benefits Of Saying Hello, How Are You?
Mental Health Support Survey
Mental Health Ireland commissioned Behaviour and Attitudes to carry out an online Omnibus survey in a representative sample of Irish people. The aim of the survey was to find out more about issues such as social support, help-seeking, and confidence in having conversations in the Irish population. This information informs the resources we produce and what we do as part of the Hello How Are You campaign.
