This year’s theme is ‘Young People and Mental Health In a Changing World’, as set by the World Federation for Mental Health.
The play directed by Darren Kelleher of Actors Vision highlights some of the warning signs to watch out for; it focuses on the need for more mental health services to deal with suicidal crisis situations. The devastating effects that suicide has on family and friends are also brought to the fore. But the main purpose of this play is to show that there is always hope, and there is always help. Bring Me Back Alive skillfully straddles drama and comedic story -telling, representative of Patricia McCann’s strong writing style, through the raw truth of her social consciousness.
Bring Me Back Alive is funded by Shine a Light Suicide and Mental Health Awareness using moneys raised and donated to the group for the work it undertakes to tackle suicide in our communities and promote mental health awareness across all of the groups work with communities, groups and individuals.
Supported by The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of Cork Councillor Mick Finn
