YOUTH information website SpunOut.ie is hosting its first ever fundraising lunch to celebrate World Mental Health Day, which takes place today.

Athlete and author David Gillick will be among those speaking at the event this Friday in the Shelbourne Hotel. 

The services of the information website - which is created by young people for young people - are accessed by some 140,000 users each month, giving them information, tools, resources and opportunities to assist informed decision-making and to support positive change in our own lives and in our communities.

The lunch is sponsored by Twitter and supported by Independent News & Media.

Mental Health Week in Ireland takes place between October 7th and 13th, and is marked by a series of events throughout the country.
