A Personal Message from Tony, our CEO

Written by

Ireland still has one of the highest reported rates of death by suicide in the European Union with young males under 21 being most at risk. Our experience is that the actual rate is much higher, and almost no school or community that we work with in the country is untouched by losing someone to suicide. As we are going into a new school year, 2019, we wanted to provide some information on how important each and every skydive fundraiser is to the work of Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland.

With the funds that we will receive from your skydive we can:

  • Provide full resource packs to 5 more schools in remote areas, or
  • Provide an additional school visit, or
  • Provide an extra 25 hours of counselling for priority at-risk teens, or
  • Provide an additional 3 weeks of FreeText Crisis Support,or
  • Arrange an additional teacher training course

You can help us in our vital, life-saving work, and amaze yourself with one of the most thrilling experiences you can have, by joining our Skydive For Life 2019

Why should I support YSPI?

Written by

 

During 2018 our facilitators will work, face to face, with over 12,500 secondary school students in around 70 new schools around the country.

We are the only youth-orientated national suicide charity and we work just for young people up to 22 years of age. You can work with us to support our services and your school community by helping to fund our dedicated Schools Outreach Team who provide our "Four Steps to Help" Suicide Awareness and Prevention talks for schools and interested organisations.

As you can imagine providing suicide awareness and prevention information directly to young people in a safe and supportive environment is critical to helping to reduce the frighteningly high rates of youth suicide in Ireland. With your help we can increase the number of talks that we are able to provide and bring this vital service to more schools, colleges and youth organisations.

Through our awareness and prevention work all across the country we are able to provide resources for young people, their friends, families, teachers, coaches and many more concerned people so that they all have the vital information they need to detect the early signs of pre-suicidal behaviours and help prevent more young deaths.

With your help we can increase the number of talks that we are able to provide and this vital service to more schools, colleges and youth organisations.

Our Four Steps to Help Programme has been specifically developed by YSPI and approved by our Advisory Board as age appropriate for ages 16+ which allows us to provide a frontline service to young people.  These talks are 100% funded by YSPI as part of our outreach work and there is no cost to the school or organisation to book and host a talk.
