Suicide is currently the leading cause of death among 18-25 year old men in Ireland.
The majority of these youths suffer from depression or psychosis, highly treatable mental illnesses. Their deaths may be preventable.
Imelda May and U2’s Adam Clayton have become involved with an organization called Walk in My Shoes, with the goal of providing free mental health services for young adults in Ireland.
If you’re so inclined, support can come in the form of organizing a ‘Silly Shoe Day’ on April 26th. … What?
“Get everyone in your school, college, university or work place to wear shoes they would not normally wear and ask them to donate just €2 to support mental health services.”
You’ve got to love a charity with personality!
If you’d like to contribute in a way that doesn’t compromise your fashion sense, you can easily donate a few dollars at their website.
