This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. We will be releasing a video each day this week of ‘Cork Stories’ hosted by Izzy Showbizzy in association with Pieta House. In each video podcast she will speak with people who either help those with mental health issues or those who have gone through struggles themselves.
In this episode Izzy talks to Conor O’Keeffe about how he’s turned his life around through fitness challenges, how he helped Pieta House before Pieta House helped him and why he’s trying to raise €100,000 for the charity by running 32 marathons in 32 counties in 32 days.
If you have been affected by any of the issues raised you can phone the free Pieta House 24-hour suicide helpline on 1800 247 247. Or, alternatively, text HELP to 51444
