Walkers across Ireland are invited to take part in the first ever Camino Walk for Aware, which takes place on June 4 to 11 next. The trek takes in 112km of spectacular scenery along the pilgrim path of St James in Santiago de Compostela, northern Spain. More information and registration details are available now on www.aware.ie or call Helen on 087 679 4356.
Participants are asked to take this opportunity to raise sponsorship for Aware. All proceeds will go towards the maintenance and development of Aware’s nationwide information and support services which are available to individuals who experience depression and to concerned family and friends. The Camino walk offers a life-changing experience for the thousands of people who complete the trek each year. In many cases people undertake the walk with friends or family, but many others choose to complete this spiritual journey alone.
Since last year, Aware has introduced new online support groups, and also increased capacity of its email support service ([email protected] ), which makes it easier for people to access support. In addition, Aware also offers a LoCall helpline (1890 303 302 ) open seven days a week, support groups throughout the country, and a CBT/Lifeskills programme.
