Around 1 in 10 people in Ireland, that's more than 450,000 people, experience depression at any one time

However many hide their condition and never get help.

Aware are a national mental health charity that provides support and education for those experiencing low mood, anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder and their message is one of hope.

Recovery is possible.

Aware are urgently seeking volunteers to help them cope with the increasing demands on their services at this time.

Now, more than ever, they need your support. They are now recruiting volunteers for their Life Skills Online and Support Line services with full remote training and ongoing support provided by Aware.

  • Support Line - A crucial service providing callers with telephone support and information about issues relating to their own mood or the mood of a friend or family member who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or other mood related conditions. Operates 365 days a year, 10am-10pm. Remotely answer calls from home.
  • Life Skills Online - A free 8 module course designed to equip people with the tools to deal with the stresses of everyday life. The volunteer’s role focuses on remote support, encouragement and feedback, helping clients to stay engaged and keep working through the content.

Aware Director of Services Bríd O’Meara joined Alison Curtis on Weekend Breakfast to chat about how people can get involved with the campaign. Catch their full chat by pressing the Listen button on this page.
