Speakers included the likes of Fine Gael candidate Maria Walsh and comedian Fabu. 

Speaking to the Leader ahead of the event, organiser Eric said: “I feel people need to acknowledge mental health difficulties in order for us to make a positive change to the lives of those who suffer from the hands of these difficulties. I have friends that have suffered with their mental health and I have had my own ups and down also.”
