SUICIDE OR SURVIVE
What is the Supporters Programme?
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.
Why The Supporters Programme
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 a new and 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.
Attending The Supporters Programme
The programme is being offered at a cost of €25 per participant for an eight hour online programme which is set over a few sessions, which includes a facilitator and all programme materials. We are happy to discuss a reduction in the fee if cost is a difficulty for you. We receive funding for these programmes through our fantastic funders the National Office for Suicide Prevention and our own fundraisers, which allows us to deliver the programme at a significantly reduced cost.
