The Elephant in the Room

The Elephant in the Room Movement - founded by former rugby player, pundit, psychotherapist and mental health advocate Brent Pope - is a creative initiative that sees four-foot-tall baby elephant sculptures being painted by well-known artists or celebrities.  The project aims to encourage the normalisation of the mental health topic in every area of society throughout Ireland.  Once the bespoke design has been applied to the elephant, it is mounted on a presentation plinth, with a naming plaque, and positioned in the likes of foyers and reception areas of businesses.  The Elephant sculpture declares that the company or organisation takes mental health seriously in their workplace and, by having an elephant on site, they are showing their employees and visitors that they prioritise their mental health and are committed to supporting their wellbeing.  For more information or to get involved, visit:
