Youth Suicide is now at all time high

Although suicide prevention charities have been working non-stop since the banking collapse in 2008 Ireland still has the 3rd highest rate of youth suicide in the European Union.

This is actually an improvement as Ireland was 2nd highest in 2012.

Children as young as 9 years old are dying by suicide every day.

We provide practical programs on the ground

We provide practical support directly to young people in their schools and colleges. We work with teachers and guidance counselors to train them in suicide prevention techniques.

What can I do to help Ireland's young people?
We receive NO governmant funding and rely on the goodwill and generosity of the Irish people.

Unfortunately we, as a nation are struggling to meet the debts from the banking collapse, a homeless crisis and a lack of political will by our government. So we need the help of the Irish Community abroad.
