HSC Holding On To Hope Campaign

6th Sep 2021


Today (Monday 6 September) is the launch of this year’s HSC mental and emotional wellbeing campaign ‘Holding On To Hope in a Changing World'.

A five week social media campaign will link World Suicide Prevention Day on Friday 10 September through to World Mental Health Day on 10 October.

The six Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland have joined forces with the Public Health Agency (PHA) to create the campaign to raise awareness of what we can do for ourselves and others to nurture hope in these challenging times. It encourages everyone to hold on to hope to protect our mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as raising awareness of local and national services that are available to help those who need it.

One of the key elements of the campaign is the Hope Quiz. This is a short multiple choice quiz that will determine your current levels of hope. The interactive quiz will direct you to resources, tips and advice that will help improve a sense of hopefulness and promote better mental and emotional wellbeing.

The Hope Quiz and Interactive Campaign Pack will be available on the
