Good evening, welcome to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland
Students Against Suicide 2018
Students Against Suicide is our National Awareness and Solidarity Campaign for 2018. 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 2018 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.
Skydive Against Suicide 2018
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.
