Join The Human Chain Challenge On Strickeen Mountain For Kerry Mental Health Association

KERRY Mental Health Association (KMHA) has launched its first Human Chain Mountain Challenge Walk to the top of Strickeen in the Gap of Dunloe near Killarney at 9am on Sunday 8th October 2023.

Walkers are invited to register at to join the human chain at the top for a fun and colourful show of support for people with mental health challenges, their families and carers in Kerry.

The General Manager of Kerry Mental Health Association, John Drummey, said: “The Human Chain Challenge will take place two days before World Mental Health Day and will be the first in a series of annual walks of a similar nature throughout the county. A key aspect of our 2024 to 2027 strategy, which is being developed, is to have the necessary funds to roll-out of free and affordable educational activities aimed at ensuring society is better informed about how to take care of its mental health. We are grateful to the local landowners and the MacGillycuddy Reeks Access Forum for facilitating the Human Chain Challenge for Kerry Mental Health Association.”

As the land is privately owned, advance registration is necessary with every walker receiving a FREE bright KMHA-branded bandana to be worn for the Official Human Chain Challenge Drone picture.

The registered walkers will need to wear appropriate clothing and footwear, children must be accompanied by responsible adults and dogs are not permitted. Car-pooling is also recommended as limited parking spaces will be available.

In the interest of safety, Kerry Mountain Rescue will be on 24-hour call and the Killarney Order of Malta will be on site at the foot of the mountain to provide First Aid assistance if required.

Kerry Mental Health Association supports the Leave No Trace campaign and will be encouraging all participants to leave Strickeen Mountain in the spotless condition that they found it.

The Human Chain Challenge at Strickeen on Sunday 8th October will be preceded by the annual #TieDayFriday Fundraising event on Friday 6th October – both taking place to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10th October.

To register for free for the Human Chain Challenge visit
