Connecting for Life

ConnectingSuicide or Survive (SOS) welcomes ‘Connecting for Life’, the Government’s strategy to reduce suicide in Ireland over the next five years.
Commenting, Caroline McGuigan, CEO Suicide or Survive (SOS) said, “I am genuinely full of hope. I see the changes on the ground and I know we need to keep working collaboratively and sharing/learning together. Suicide or Survive feels included and part of the strategy and we are only delighted to be playing our part. The Connecting for Life Strategy was thoroughly researched and is evidence based. There was a robust national consultation to help us develop this roadmap in how together, we will reduce the loss of life through suicide.”
“We are all on this journey together, and over the next five years we at Suicide or Survive will do everything in our power to support and help to roll out the government’s National Strategy in its prevention of suicide and most importantly, in how we all can connect and understand our own mental health.” Launched
