Awareness Ribbons, a commonly seen 21st Century phenomenon, were created to increase general public awareness of a particular illness, disability or condition, and to gather support for its sufferers.
It is a simple way to show your support for a specific cause, or perhaps even to indicate that you are suffering from that particular condition yourself.

This listing is for an Green Awarness bracelet, supporting sufferers of Depression, Childhood Depression and Mental Health conditions.
Depression in all its forms is a debilitating yet invisible condition, and due to the misconceptions and a general lack of understanding surrounding mental health, sufferers often feel isolated and misunderstood.

We are now becoming more aware of the wide ranging effects of depression and related mental health conditions, and are learning how to best support sufferers, be it in the workplace or at home.
You don’t need to be an expert to start talking about mental health, sometimes the most helpful thing you can do is to let someone know that you are there for them and simply listen.

❤️Talk, but listen too, simply being there will mean a lot.

❤️Take your lead from the person, ask them how best you can help.

❤️Avoid saying things like ‘Cheer up’, ‘I’m sure it’ll pass’ and ‘Pull yourself together’ this definitely won’t help.

❤️Accept them as they are, be open minded and non-judgemental.

❤️Keep in touch, send a text or just ask someone how they are doing.

❤️Don't stop including them in your plans, even if they always seem to say no. They might not feel like socialising, but still want to be asked!

❤️Don’t just talk about their depression, chat about everyday things as well.


Fortunately the public perception and attitude to mental health is changing, albeit slowly, and it is becoming something that can begin to be discussed more openly, although many sufferers will be anxious about the reactions of friends and family.
Wearing an awareness bracelet can help to normalise the condition, as well as initiating discussion and gathering support.
Indeed, it is estimated that 1 in 3 people will suffer from some sort of depression or mental health issues at some time in their lives, so it is not a subject that we can ignore!

This Green Ribbon Awareness bracelet is made from Green faux suede, and is available in a range of sizes, via the drop down menu, and is fully adjustable with an extension chain. Just let me know if you require a size that is not listed, by contacting me via the 'Message to Seller' option.

The suede band attaches to an infinity symbol, to represent the universality of the condition, and to emphasise that this condition is something that affects the sufferer each minute of each hour of each and every day. Alternatively, you can choose to replace the infinity symbol with an affirmation ring with the word STRENGTH stamped on it, to represent the fight that sufferers battle through on a daily basis, or a ring with SURVIVOR, to let the world know that you are determined to get through this, that your story is not over (see listing photo for examples of these different options).

Finally, a charm is added as a finishing touch.
You can choose a green enamelled awareness ribbon, a plain silver awareness ribbon, a silver 'hope' ribbon, simply select your preference from the drop down menu.
