Pieta was founded in Dublin in 2006. Pieta was established to provide free, accessible one-to-one counselling to people suffering from suicidal ideation, engaging in self-harm or to those bereaved by suicide. With over 200 qualified therapists across 20 physical centres, we do everything we can to ensure that help is available to those in crisis. 
 
In 2021, despite the impact of Covid 19, we are proud to have delivered over 48,000 hours of therapy to those impacted by suicide and self-harm. We also answered over 80,000 crisis calls and texts and supported over 600 households impacted and bereaved by suicide. 
 
We are passionate about our life-saving work. And all services are provided free of charge. For more information, visit our website.

In 2009, in the Phoenix Park in Dublin, 400 people set off on the inaugural Darkness Into Light 5km walk to raise funds for Pieta. From small beginnings, the movement has continued to grow, and now there are about 200,000 participants in Darkness Into Light each year. 

Each year the walk provides an opportunity for people to connect with their local community and to bring hope to people who have been impacted by suicide. Our team of dedicated volunteers, in Ireland and overseas, return year on year to make the event a success and to help us all continue to raise awareness and hope in the global fight against suicide and self-harm.

Since Darkness Into Light began, our supporters have helped us raise almost €29 million, which has enabled us to keep our doors and our 24/7 helpline open for people in crisis, free of charge. In 2012, our first international event took place in London, and since then our international partner charities, from Seoul to Spain and New Zealand to the Netherlands, have benefited from an investment of over €3.5 million in local mental health support services.

Pieta are so proud to have been supported by Electric Ireland since 2013. Together, Pieta and Electric Ireland and our partner charities and supporters across the world have grown Darkness Into Light into a global act of solidarity for people affected by suicide and self-harm.

In 2022, we are delighted to be welcoming back our in-person walks in Ireland and across the world. In 2021, we were also overwhelmed by the support of thousands of people who took part in Darkness Into Light in their own way. So, this year, we are inviting you to take part in Darkness Into Light in whatever way you want. The important thing is that you share a sunrise moment and raise vital funds for people affected by suicide and self-harm. Together, we can create a global sunrise moment and join together to be the light against the dark.
