Tea break campaign

Communities and individuals across Wicklow are being asked to host a tea morning to raise awareness about mental health.

This September, Suicide or Survive (SOS) will host its National Tea Break campaign across Ireland. The Irish charity, which is based in Shankill, is dedicated to breaking down stigma associated with mental health across the country, through a range of innovative and life changing programmes that provide tips, tools and techniques to allow everyone to take ownership of their own mental health and wellness.

Throughout September, Suicide or Survive is inviting people across Wicklow to start a conversation about mental health, and the easiest way to do this is over a cup of tea. Hosts are urged to gather friends, family, colleagues and the community together to host a Communi'Tea Break, be it at work, in school, local community halls or sport centres, or at their own kitchen table.

To take part in the National Tea Break, simply register and download a pack from www.suicideorsurvive.ie. The National Tea Break pack includes everything needed to host a successful tea break. All funds raised will be invested in bringing Suicide or Survives' unique programmes and services to communities across the nation.
