With two weeks to go until the end of the month, Suicide or Survive (SOS ) is calling on tea and coffee lovers across the nation to put on the kettle, make a cuppa, and talk about mental health.

SOS’s National Tea Break campaign offers the perfect opportunity to gather friends, family, colleagues and the community together to host a community tea break. As well as raising awareness about mental health, each tea break will raise much-needed funds which will assist SOS in continuing its work and programmes.

SOS was founded by Caroline McGuigan in 2003, born from her own personal experience of anxiety, depression, and a suicide attempt, and her road to recovery.

The Irish charity is dedicated to breaking down stigma associated with mental health through a range of innovative and life changing programmes that provide tips, tools and techniques to allow everyone to take ownership of their own mental health and wellness.

To take part in the National Tea Break, simply register and download a pack from www.suicideorsurvive.ie Then, all that is left is to get the community together, pop on the kettle, and get chatting.

To find out more about SOS and the upcoming National Tea Break, visit www.suicideorsurvive.ie or call (1890 ) 577577 to speak to a SOS representative.
