Description

Help increase Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention at ‘Walking Out of Darkness’

‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ events will take place in Weston Super Mare on Saturday 16th September 2017.

An opportunity for everyone to walk together in support and unity for individuals and families suffering from Mental Health Difficulties and those, who have lost loved ones by suicide. The 10-mile fundraising walk called Walking out of Darkness will take place in Weston on Saturday 24 June. The walk will take in many sights around the town including the Grand Pier with the start and finish on the Beach Lawns.

Following the success of the Walking out of Darkness events in Birmingham and London, we cannot wait for the Weston super Mare event. The event also incorporates a festival to showcase local and national mental health and suicide prevention charities and services, which will be held at Beach Lawns.

Dawn Carey, the Operations Manager from In Charley’s Memory said: “Mental health does not discriminate. Whether it is a young person like Charley who was beaten by the invisible illness at 18 or a work colleague who, to the outside world seems to have it all, anyone can be affected.

“For us, Walking out of Darkness is about people from all walks of life young and old coming together to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma. Walking side by side talking and sharing stories, and knowing that you’re not alone and it’s okay to talk. That is why In Charley’s Memory is part of Walking out of Darkness”.

1 in 4 people in the UK directly affected by poor mental health wellness, these two events are aimed to end the stigmas involved in seeking help when required. All previous events have been widely supported by the Government, Department of Health, Public Health England, NHS England, Rethink Mental Illness, North Somerset Council plus Legal & General, several other businesses, organisations and services across the UK; 2017 is will supported by even more.

Register today and together with thousands of people around the country, we can empower and inspire the end of mental illness stigma, raising mental health awareness and suicide prevention at ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’.
