Challenge yourself with Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland and sign up to our Sing Against Suicide Experience.  This is our most exciting fundraising campaign yet and we’re hoping to encourage people from all over Ireland to participate. 

We’re running Sing Against Suicide because youth suicide is a shadow across the lives of everyone in Ireland. Our country has one of the highest reported rates of suicide for 12-22 year olds in Europe. There is a very real need for action from our community.  YSPI are the only national charity focusing on youth self-harm and youth suicide specifically. In 2017 we have visited around 90 schools and met around 16,000 students face to face. Your support will enable us to carry out many more educational workshops in schools and colleges across Ireland.

We’re asking you to help provide resources for young people, their friends, families, teachers and coaches so that the information on early signs of pre-suicidal behaviour is put out there, so that there’s more awareness raised on this issue and so that this tragic loss of life is reduced.

Tony
