The annual ‘Walk of Life’ event, walking ‘Out of the Darkness and into the Dawn’, is a collective regional approach to mark World Suicide Prevention Day on Saturday 10th of September 2011. Representatives from Suicide Prevention and Support groups will make their way to converge on Belfast City Hall for 6am.
As Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people are more likely to experience thoughts of suicide and to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers, we would encourage you to join with us by meeting at Belfast LGBT Centre at 5:15am on Saturday 10th of September. Over the last two years, members of the LGB&T communities and the respective organisations have joined in this event. This year, Malachai O’Hara, Mental Health Officer at The Rainbow Project will speak at the event to highlight the increased risk of suicide amongst this community and to remember those lost through suicide.
