The Teach Dara Community and Family Centre is holding a Dawn Walk event in Kildare later this month to raise awareness about mental health.

Commencing at 5am, the walk will start at Kildare Village, passing through St Brigid’s Well and the National Stud, then ending at Market Square, Kildare Town. 

Organisers behind the event described the route as a 'mindful 5km walk to remember those lost to or families in the aftermath of suicide.'

They added that all proceeds will go towards offering immediate crisis counseling to all that need it.
