Ireland’s youth information website created by young people, for young people.
Developed by the National Suicide Research Foundation and funded by the Health Research Board (HRB) this website provides evidence-based information on bereavement following suicide and responding to people at risk of suicide.
The information is tailored for people bereaved by suicide and for health professionals, including GPs and mental health professionals, as well as the general public.
The role of the HSE’s National Office for Suicide Prevention (NOSP) is to effectively support, inform, monitor and co-ordinate the implementation of Connecting for Life.
