Ireland has the fourth highest teen suicide rate out
of 31 countries in the EU, with one in three young people experiencing some
form of mental health difficulty in any given year. 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. Cycle Against
Suicide's evidence-based, education
backed, schools programme not only creates a caring, respectful and safe
learning environment that educates secondary students in the area of mental
health and well-being, but also, builds hope and resilience, and fosters a
sense of belonging among students.
