Join Our Global Movement
On 11 May our light will spread across the world in over 200 venues, in 19 countries across 5 continents.
This May, hundreds of thousands of people around the world will get together to walk from the darkness of night into the light of morning to help us in the global fight against suicide and self-harm.
Symbolically the walk represents the therapeutic counselling journey. It sparks conversation about the importance of mental health and wellbeing in all our lives. The entry fees raised around the world allow Pieta House and our international charity partners to continue to deliver our vital services.
Join us on May 11. Let’s walk together for a brighter future.
|Darkness Into Light is more than just a walk, it’s a global movement against suicide and self-harm. As our flagship fundraiser, it keeps our doors open and allows us to help more people every year, always free of charge.|

|Pieta House saved my life. This may sound dramatic but it’s true.|
|We found there was an increase in the level of well-being after the event, and that the effects were largest for those who had lost an immediate family member to suicide.|

…I don’t like the dark. But its ok because we have these little lights to light the way and we’re all walking together. My little light on its own isn’t that bright, but with everyone’s light shining together
Darkness Into Light is more than a fundraiser, it’s an effective intervention.
