  • Organise your own event or join Pieta on the day for a truly magical experience.
  • Make Darkness into Light the centre of Pieta led mental health awareness week in your workplace.

We also want to share with you a very special message from one mother who knows exactly why your help at Darkness into Light is so important.

Just a couple years ago, Aoife’s mum was terrified she was going to lose her daughter to suicide. But now, with the help of Pieta, made possible by amazing supporters like you, Aoife has hope and happiness in her life again.

With Pieta, Aoife found someone she could talk to, someone who could help her. I remember being out for a walk and seeing someone with a yellow Pieta Darkness into Light t-shirt. I suddenly started to cry. I wanted to rush over and tell her how grateful we are. Because I know the counselling and care that my daughter received from Pieta was only possible from people who support Pieta through events like Darkness into Light.” – Aoife’s mum

The amazing, longstanding connections you have in your business community mean that you can spread awareness, advocacy, and fundraising efforts in a really personal and important way.

And with 300 calls and texts from people in crisis every 24 hours – this unique help you can provide is absolutely vital and it can’t wait.
