On Saturday, May 11th, 2024, a major event on suicide prevention will take place in Berlin on Tempelhofer Feld. It is called “Darkness Into Light”. Visitors will meet at dusk (4:15 am) for a 5 km run or walk (1.5 hours) and move from dusk into day, i.e. from darkness into light, symbolizing the overcoming of mental health problems.

“Darkness Into Light” originated in Ireland and is organized every year by the Irish charity Pieta House (https://www.pieta.ie/), which is dedicated to helping people with suicidal thoughts and self-harming behaviour. The event now also takes place internationally. And this year it is coming to Germany for the first time, organized by Pieta House and Telefonseelsorge Berlin e.V.
