Cycle Against Suicide is an awareness/education charity (CHY 20687) that makes a valuable contribution to the public education of mental health by changing the narrative surrounding suicide.  When an individual is vulnerable enough to consider taking their own life, silence is read as indifference. With hundreds of people dying by suicide in Ireland each year and research indicating that thousands more contemplate it, we all have a role to play to collectively address the challenges that suicide presents.  

 

In a bid to save more lives, Cycle Against Suicide through its programmes and events, sets out to change culture and create a society that openly talks about suicide to allow people to speak up and seek help.

 

One of the core areas of our work is our school’s programme and for which we are fundraising.  For the majority of adults living with mental health problems or mental illness, the first onset of their symptoms began when they were teenagers, and evidence shows that early intervention is critical if treatment is to have the most positive outcomes for the future life chances of those affected.

 

Our evidence-based schools programme creates a caring, respectful and safe learning environment that supports mental health in schools, building hope and resilience and fostering a sense of belonging among young people.

Our school's programme not address the stigma of mental health, it sets out to teach students how to effectively handle distress by 'reaching within' and utilising personal coping strategies and  'reaching out' by seeking and accepting help outside of themselves.  Our aim is help young people to build resilience by learning specific actions to improve mental wellness.  These transferable skills will help to ensure the best possible outcome for young people
