Suicide and self-harm are critical public health issues globally and within Ireland. Research, such as that conducted by the NSRF, can help us understand the causes, the risk factors and protective factors associated with suicidal behaviour.

Any donation, big or small, will help us to continue, and expand, our research with the ultimate aim of reducing self-harm and suicidal behaviour in Ireland and internationally.

The National Suicide Research Foundation (NSRF) is a registered charity (CHY11351) based in University College Cork, Ireland. Donations are made through iDonate.


Previous fundraisers have included an incredible walk from Mizen Head to Malin Head, a 500,000 steps in a month challenge and a virtual ‘Cycle the Globe’ challenge.

If you are interested in fundraising for the NSRF, or if you have a fundraising idea, we would love to hear from you.

Corporate Partners – how you can help

We are actively working with companies and professionals across Ireland to improve Workplace Mental Health.
