Everyone needs help sometime
Our facilitators work face to face with an average of 350 young people a week in schools up and down the country.  Our schools programme brings safe, age-appropriate, mental health awareness and suicide prevention information to transition, 5th and 6th years.
Just €5 will allow our team to work with an additional five students a month.  It doesn't sound like much but it could save a young life.
