Darkness into Light

Join us for the most important sunrise of the year!

Health in Mind are proud to be one of the newest partnership charities of Pieta’s iconic Darkness into Light 5K walk – huge thanks to the committee for organising this walk and choosing to support Health in Mind.  

Each year, these walks provide an opportunity for people worldwide to connect with their local community and to bring hope to people who have been impacted by suicide.

Setting off together we’ll walk a 5K circuit of Arthur’s Seat. Walks will take place across Ireland, the UK and beyond on Saturday 11 May, setting off before dawn at 4.15am and walking a 5K together as the sun rises. Join us for this unique experience and let’s share hope by walking from Darkness into Light together.
