SUICIDE OR SURVIVE

Wellness Workshops Upcoming Events

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.

Loneliness affects people of all ages – 33% of those who completed the survey said that they were lonely. Loneliness is happening to people all around us and it’s also happening to US.
