Suicide Aware have enlisted a Love/Hate actor to launch a new television campaign supporting their Amber Flag initiative.
The voluntary group, who promote positive mental health among young people and the wider community, have launched a new ad which stars Irish actor Peter Coonan, better known as Fran to Love/Hate fans.
The Amber Flag initiative aims to promote positive mental health issues in schools, colleges, clubs, societies and organisations throughout Ireland.
Caoimhe Galvin, director of Suicide Aware, said that they are very excited about this new campaign.
“We’re delighted to launch our ad campaign with Peter Coonan for the Amber Flag.” she said.
"We hope it will encourage more schools, clubs, societies and communities to get involved. Let's all help in creating a place where we can talk and be listened to. It's all about promoting positive mental health and awareness.”
The ad will be launched today on Suicide Aware’s main social media channels at 8pm.
