Host a community tea break for SOS

Throughout September, Suicide or Survive is inviting people in Louth and across the nation to start a conversation about mental health, and the easiest way to do this is over a cup of tea!

The National Tea Break offers the perfect opportunity to gather friends, family, colleagues and the community together to host a community tea break in Louth, be it at work, in school, local community halls or sport centres, or at your own kitchen table.

As well as raising awareness about mental health, each tea break will raise much-needed funds which will assist Suicide or Survive in continuing its work and programmes.

World Suicide Prevention Day is on Sunday, 10th September, and many mental health charities mark this day through different initiatives. Rather than just focusing on one day in the year, SOS aims to make the whole month of September a time to talk about mental health, and so break the stigma which prevents people from seeking help.

To take part in the National Tea Break, and host your own community tea break in Louth, simply register and download a pack from www.suicideorsurvive.ie

All funds raised will be invested in bringing Suicide or Survives' unique programmes and services to communities across the nation.
