Cycle Against Suicide

Cycle Against Suicide

Over 800 people die by suicide on the island of Ireland each year. That is 800 families and communities devastated; 800 lives cut short. Cycle Against Suicide aims to change this by beginning a conversation about mental health and getting the message that ‘it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help’ into schools, businesses and communities throughout the island of Ireland.



Each year Cycle Against Suicide brings together cyclists with different abilities, different stories, different “whys,” to help break the cycle of suicide on the island of Ireland. The now annual event, has seen over 10,000 cyclists take to the roads, shoulder to shoulder since 2013.



Over the past three years of Cycle Against Suicide, over 10,000 cyclists have joined us on all types of bikes and in all types of weather to help spread the message that “It’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help”. Now entering its fourth year, Cycle Against Suicide wants 2016 to be the biggest and best Cycle yet bringing our message to the 6.4 million people on the island of Ireland. To do this we need your help. Register as a cyclist, volunteer or homestay provider today and together, shoulder to shoulder, let’s break the cycle of suicide in Ireland.



Cycle Against Suicide founder, Jim Breen said, “This is the forth year of the Cycle Against Suicide and we’re blown away with the phenomenal response from the schools involved in the Cycle. These schools are critical to helping us spread the message that it’s ok not to feel ok; and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help. Each year over the two weeks of our annual Cycle, we give presentations in schools and communities all around the island of Ireland and we witness how hugely responsive students are to that message. We also see the value students place on their own mental wellbeing and that of their friends and families.”


This is a huge movement and you can be part of it. Head to www.cycleagainstsuicide.com more information and get registering today.
