Dustin the Turkey used a Walk In My Shoes selfie stick to take a selfie of himself.

This Friday, 8th of April, we are asking all social media users to take a selfie and share it using the hashtag #MindYourSelfie and direct people to to download the free mental health eBooks,” Sarah Surgenor, Head of Communications at St. Patrick’s Mental Health Services said.

The mental health information eBooks is part of a series that will be made available to primary and secondary schools, colleges, businesses and communities in Ireland. Each eBook has a different theme for each sector. The eBooks give advice on ways to take care of one’s mental health and informs the reader of the warning signs and causes of mental health problems.
