Hike4Hope was conceived by Siobhan O'Neill, Professor of Mental Health Sciences, and Paddy Gray, Professor of Housing. They have both researched and written on these topics for over 15 years. They have both been concerned about the links between housing and mental health and the high rates of suicide in NI.

Event details


Christmas can be a difficult time for people who have experienced loss or who are in a personal or financial crisis. Hike4HopeNI aims to spread the word that "it's ok not to feel ok and it's absolutely ok to ask for help". They will raise money for charities working in housing, mental health and suicide prevention. The project also wants to raise awareness of the links between these topics and highlight the plight of people with housing and mental health problems as we approach the festive season.
