Cycle Against Suicide is an awareness charity (CHY 20687) that makes a valuable contribution to the public education of mental health by changing the narrative surrounding suicide.  When an individual is vulnerable enough to consider taking their own life, silence is read as indifference. With over 800 people dying by suicide in Ireland each year and research indicating that thousands more contemplate it, we all have a role to play to collectively address the challenges that suicide presents.  In a bid to save more lives, Cycle Against Suicide sets out to change culture and create a society that openly talks about suicide, thus enabling people to speak up and reach out for help.

 

Cycle Against Suicide’s leading awareness campaign into communities is our Main Cycle, which this year will take place from April 27th to May 6th. This campaign/cycle promotes a key message to local people: ‘It’s OK not to feel OK; and it is absolutely OK to ask for help’.   This simple yet powerful message could save the lives of those in our communities who are feeling alone.

We are inviting cyclists of all abilities to come join with us for any leg of this event to help change the conversation around suicide.
