Good afternoon, welcome to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland

Online Donation

Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland will be hosting a series of high-profile awareness events targeted specifically at Athlone on 19th to 22nd April, Stay Safe Athlone.
 
We will be running a series of awareness and prevention events in Athlone on 19th – 22nd April and we hope that local businesses might consider supporting us. All our event sponsors will be acknowledged in the booklets which will be delivered by local volunteers from the Westmeath Mental Health Awareness Team to around 5,000 homes in the town and surrounding areas.
 
We would be very grateful for any sponsorship you feel you could offer, but if you can make a sponsorship commitment of €500 or over we will also be acknowledging these premium sponsors through advertorials in the Athlone Advertiser and the Westmeath Independent; as well as on the front cover of the Stay Safe Athlone booklets for house to house distribution. Premium sponsors may also like to put a ¼ page or ½ page support advert into the booklet.
