The document provides guidance for people in communities who would like to get involved in suicide prevention activities by building their knowledge, skills and understanding.
This includes providing information on how to respond to suicide and self-harm in a balanced, safe and sensitive way to make sure that a “do no harm” approach is taken.
Real-life case studies of activities, initiatives and programmes being carried out throughout Ireland are outlined, such as in schools, sports clubs and work places.
This book was produced by Mary O’Sullivan, HSE Resource Officer for Suicide Prevention and Chair
of West Be Well, with the support of many other colleagues working in the HSE, statutory services
and voluntary and community groups. It was edited by Eithne Tiernan and published by the HSE
National Office for Suicide Prevention.
