Electric Ireland has teamed up with Musician and Mental Health Activist Niall Breslin, Academic, Writer and Mental Health Advocate Sinéad Burke, Sports Broadcaster Evanne Ní Chuilinn, Bi Polar Bear Wear founder and 2018 Darkness Into Light t-shirt designer Stephen Considine, Dublin GAA All Ireland Winner Nicole Owens and Fair City actor Eric Lalor to create a captivating video and campaign to highlight the issues of suicide and self-harm.
