A ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ event will be taking place in Birmingham on Saturday 6 May 2017 to wrap up ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’. This is an opportunity for everyone to walk together in support and unity for individuals and families suffering from mental health difficulties and those who have lost loved ones by suicide.
Speaking on their website CLASP states that ‘Over the last three years, Walking Out Of Darkness events have inspired and motivated more people, businesses, charities and services across the country to unite in ending the stigma surrounding mental illness by increasing mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
‘’The event's 10 mile walk in Birmingham and London offers a platform for all during ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ 2017 when charities, businesses, organisations and service across the UK seek to highlight how together, we can all make a difference by acknowledging these, once unuttered, topics and assist in increasing communication, education by raising awareness around mental health and suicide prevention.’’
Registration is only £10 and participants have the opportunity to fundraise for ‘any’ UK mental health charity they desire.
