“There is just one day to go to this year’s Darkness Into Light, proudly supported by Electric Ireland, and the excitement is really starting to build”

This Friday, RTÉ is dedicating a very special Late Late Show to all the wonderful people who are taking part in this year’s Darkness Into Light, proudly supported by Electric Ireland.

So please, join us by signing up for Darkness Into Light now, and tune in on Friday night for a really special show.

Over the course of a few magical hours, you will see why your support for Darkness Into Light matters so much. You’ll get to meet some incredible and courageous people and hear some of the most moving and inspiring stories. 

This year, we can’t gather together as we normally would for Darkness Into Light, so this special Late Late Show is a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a community to share stories and give each other the hope we need.

 

So, please sign up as soon as you can.

Sign up at Darknessintolight.ie

You will be joining an extraordinary family of kind and caring people and helping to send a powerful message of hope right across the world.

 

You are invited to join Pieta and Electric Ireland on 8th May 2021 for a special Darkness Into Light sunrise.

“Even though we can’t gather together, we can still walk under one sunrise, holding in our hearts all those impacted by suicide and self-harm.”

Each and every year, your vital support enables Pieta to change the lives of thousands of people struggling with suicidal thoughts, or self harming. 

Sign up for a special Darkness Into Light sunrise today to avail of Early Bird prices, and take part locally with your loved ones.

So, with only a few weeks left before this year’s very special Darkness Into Light, proudly supported by Electric Ireland, we wanted to take this opportunity to ask you to do something very important.

We want you to take a minute – and care for yourself.

Pieta therapist Sinead Raftery has made a very special short video just for you, to explain some of the really simple practical things that you can do today to help build your own resilience and protect your mental health. 
 Over the last year we have seen levels of anxiety across the country soar and the number of calls to Pieta’s 24/7 Crisis Helpline have increased steadily.

That’s why this year’s Darkness Into Light is so important. 

So please, join us if you can by signing up for Darkness Into Light today.

When you sign up you will be helping to send a really powerful message of hope to those who are struggling right now.

But you will also be sending your message of help to your own family and friends and the people you care for most

The truth is, no one is immune to anxiety. None of us can stop worry and stress coming into our lives. But what we can do is build our resilience and protect ourselves so that we are able to cope with the challenges we all have to face.

So take a moment to watch Sinead’s video and learn about the simple steps you can take to protect your own mental health today.

And please join us by signing up for this year’s Darkness Into Light today.

We always say that hope is something we give to each other. And Darkness Into Light is an amazing way for us to reach out, support each other and give each other that hope.

You can help us to make that hope shine even brighter.
