Suicide or Survive (SOS) will hold its annual “FeelGood Friday” this Friday, March 29, 2013.

SOS is an Irish charity focussed on breaking down the stigma associated with mental health issues and ensuring that those affected have access to quality recovery services that are right for the individual. SOS is working to build a society where people embrace their mental health wellness and those with difficulties are treated with dignity and respect, and experience a service that offers them hope, a safe place and a positive future.

On Good Friday, SOS will be selling its “Life Little Emergency Kits” in outlets across the nation and through their website. The kits, which cost €3 each, act as a reminder that no matter how dark the situation may seem, there is support out there. SOS is asking businesses, in particular retail outlets, to take a box of kits to sell to their staff, customers or partners.

SOS would ask anyone who wants to get involved in making “FeelGood Friday” a successful day for the promotion of mental wellness in Ireland by running their own local event to please contact the organisation directly on - 1890577577 or visit www.suicideorsurvive.ie for advice or support.
