The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown up many and varied challenges for all of us. Many familiar things are on hold, normal supports are not accessible and networks that we usually rely on, are for now just out of reach. We know this is a challenging time for many people and we are committed to doing all we can to offer support. While under normal circumstances we could be travelling the country offering a variety of workshops, this is not possible at present. SOS have always held the belief that we are stronger together and so we want to ensure that you feel supported at this time and, with the funding of the HSE and the National Office for Suicide Prevention, we are now offering a series of live interactive daily wellness webinars. There is no charge to attend these and all are welcome. You can watch via your phone, tablet and laptop and ask questions through our moderated chat facility. All you need is a secure internet connection and ideally a quiet space to tune in for approximately an hour. We look forward to you joining us and for us to journey together.
We would love to hear your feedback, why not tell us what topics you want to see on our webinars by filling out this form.

Suicide or Survive are delighted to bring our Supporters Programme to an online platform using Zoom.
Suicide or Survive recognises and understands that supporting someone who is struggling with their mental health can be challenging.
For this reason, we have developed an innovative programme for people supporting family members, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, people in their community and others who are struggling with their mental health. It is the first of its kind in Ireland.
This programme teaches supporters practical skills they can use to support others, it gives information on what supports are available and how they can be accessed and teaches practical ways of looking after your own mental health. The programme focuses on supporting people who are struggling with their mental health and is not exclusively suicide focussed. It is designed for people supporting those in their personal lives rather than those doing so in a professional capacity.
Participants will take away:
• Practical tips and tools they can use to look after their own mental health while supporting others
• The support skills of connecting, empowering, and supporting movement
• Information on where and how to find support
This programme will run on 27th and 29th October 2021 and will be facilitated online via Zoom. It will be a requirement that participant cameras and sound are working to ensure full participation. A link to access the training will be emailed to you prior to the programme commencing.
Wednesday 27th October 1.00pm to 5.00pm
Friday 29th October 1.00pm to 5.00pm
