Good afternoon, welcome to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland
Students Against Suicide 2017
Students Against Suicide is our National Awareness and Solidarity Campaign for 2017. Students from across the country contact us daily asking why more isn't being done about youth suicide specifically. YSPI's Schools Programme will reach around 24,000 students in schools and colleges across the country this year but we don't receive a cent from the government. We want 2017 to be our year of awareness, our year of solidarity with the families, friends and fellow students of those young people who have died by suicide.
School Visits Programme 2016-17
Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland works exclusively with young people ages 12 -22 to raise awareness of youth suicide. We work with schools, colleges and youth groups to provide youth suicide prevention services which are all provided under the Four Steps to Help Programme for Schools.
Skydive Against Suicide 2017
Challenge yourself with Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland and sign up to our Skydive against Suicide. This is our biggest fundraising campaign for 2017 and we’re hoping to encourage people from all over Ireland to participate in YSPI Skydive against Suicide.
