The HSE’s National Counselling Service (NCS), is currently recruiting for the Eden Programme.
Eden is an educational programme with a therapeutic element for people over the age of 18 years who have attempted or contemplated suicide.
The aim of the programme is to provide a safe space where participants can explore their experiences, learn skills to help them monitor and manage their mental health and build a range of supports appropriate to their needs with the ultimate aim of moving away from suicide as an option of choice in times of crisis.
This programme runs one morning a week for 26 weeks and the next programmes in Galway and Claremorris (face-to-face) will begin in January 2023, with a maximum of 16 participants per location.
Interviews for this programme will take place this month (November).
Participants can self-refer to the programme. To find out more call (091) 528030 email: firstname.lastname@example.org or click HERE.
· Those who have a history of suicidality – have attempted or contemplated suicide
· Service available to adults over 18yrs of age

Participants will be offered a screening following referral, which will lead to an interview to identify their needs and if additional supports are required.
These will be put in place prior to the commencement of programme.
