The Thomas Hayes Trust

We are a community based suicide prevention, mental health awareness and bereavement support charity.
We provide free counselling services to individuals, families and friends who have been affected by suicide and we support our community by providing a safe space to talk.





Mission Statement


The aim of the Thomas Hayes Trust is to provide support to individuals and families/friends who are affected by loss, through suicide, or those considering suicide and to contribute to the prevention of suicide in the community.  


The Thomas Hayes Trust will undertake this objective through

  • The provision of free counselling
  • Education
  • A drop in support service in the Teac Tom Centre
  • A public awareness campaign to promote positive mental health
  • A 24 hour helpline


The trust uses an interagency approach, and will collaborate with those who are concerned with mental health awareness and suicide prevention in Kilkenny and its environs.

The mission statement will be supported through the incorporation of its core values:

 �         Respect - Accept each person as equal and unique.

�         Accountability - Be transparent in all the Trusts actions.

�         Quality - Deliver beneficial services which are provided by appropriate people, based on international best practice and in line with national and local strategies in a safe and nurturing environment.
