This year 'Walking Out Of Darkness' events will promote ‘Mental Health Equality for All’


Four cities will be staging ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ events, this year. London’s event is a 10 mile route along the Thames Embankment, offering amazing and engaging views of the capital. Norwich, Bristol and Birmingham events have 10 kilometre routes, which highlight the beauty of each city.

The focus at every ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ event regardless of distance, remains the same:

• Promoting Mental Health Equality Information
• Raising Mental Health Awareness
• Increasing Suicide Prevention
• Ending Mental ill-Health Discrimination

We can all make a difference by sharing mental health information, signposting to charities or services; plus looking after ourselves and others with mental wellbeing advice. Every ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ event participant will receive a ‘Mental Health Equality for All’ booklet with their event packets available from Monday 8 April 2019.

Invite your family, friends, colleagues, businesses, schools and services to sign up for a ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ event in 2019. Fundraise for ‘ANY’ mental health or suicide prevention charity and join thousands of past ‘Walking Out Of Darkness’ participants, who donated over £300,000 via previous events. Mental health is important to everyone and by walking in unity, we inspire our local communities and people across the country to promote ‘Mental Health Equality for All’.
