Electric Ireland Darkness Into Light Participants

Levels of suicide and self-harm are unprecedented in Ireland. Pieta House believe it’s time our country woke up to this very traumatic issue, one that affects young and old alike. Pieta House has centres across the country and provides free counselling to anyone in suicidal crisis, anyone bereaved by suicide, and people who engage in self-harm. Through their support and counselling services, Pieta House aims to bring light to people’s lives during times of crisis.

In the last 11 years Pieta House has provided face-to-face professional therapy to more than 28,000 people. This support is always given completely free of charge, which is why they rely so heavily on the help and donations of volunteers and supporters. Electric Ireland is proud of our long association with Pieta House. The annual Darkness Into Light 5km events give us all an opportunity to increase their funds so they can save and improve even more lives.
