What is The Blue Tree Project?
Their mission is to help spark difficult conversations and encourage people to speak up when battling mental health concerns.
By selecting a tree to paint blue, it spreads the message that "it’s OK to not be OK", it can help break down the stigma that is still largely attached to mental health.
Good Mental Health is when we can cope with the stressors of our daily lives, participate in loving relationships, contribute to our community, and work towards our goals. Eveyone has mental health - learn how to reflect, have fun and find a connection with yours.
