Meet an Organisation – Stop Suicide

STOP Suicide LogoSTOP Suicide was founded in 2004 by families who were bereaved by suicide. We are a community, voluntary body that works to prevent suicide by informing educating and promoting positive suicide prevention policies throughout the west of Ireland. Our offices are located upstairs at the Bee park Resource Centre in Manorhamilton Co. Leitrim.

We have 22 fully qualified Garda Vetted Counsellors are located across Sligo, Leitrim, Donegal, Cavan, Mayo, Roscommon & Galway. Each counsellor has their own counselling room. We also have a counselling room available at the Beepark Resource Centre in Manorhamilton.

We provide a counselling service to those that are in distress or feeling suicidal, to those who have been bereaved by suicide.

We promote awareness of the problem of suicide & suicidal behaviour in the general public by holding information evenings & workshops by communication of relevant material through the media so the public are better informed about suicide prevention.

We facilitate a bereavement support group to those who have been bereaved by suicide. This takes place on the first Thursday of the month at 7pm in the Beepark Resource Centre, Manorhamilton. Co. Leitrim
