Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland
Fundraising Events 2018

Thank you for taking time to find out more about Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland and the vital work that we do. We receive no state funding whatsoever so all our programmes in schools and colleges around the country are funded entirely by some corporate sponsorship but mostly through the generous support of the public.




It's a Great Cause

With your help YSPI are able to provide resources for young people, their friends and families, so that they have all the information they need to detect pre-suicidal behaviours. You can help us in our vital, life-saving work, and amaze yourself with one of the many thrilling experiences we have organised this year and, best of all, you'll be helping to save lives.

So what do my donations achieve ...?


For every extra €500 we receive we can:

remote
Provide resource packs to 5 more schools in remote areas

Due to logistical limitations and lack of resources, some of the more remote areas of the country cannot be serviced by our facilitators as easily as more urban areas. Our response is providing a training pack so teachers can provide the programme in their own schools.

Each pack will provide resources for all the TY, 5th and 6th year students in the school. Funding 5 school resource packs would allow us to directly contact an additional 625 to 750 students before the end of 2018.

remote
Fund an additional second-level school visit

Based on audited figures from 2015 and 2016 the cost of providing a school visit to the charity is around €500 which includes facilitator salaries, printing, teacher packs and travel.

Each additional school visit we can achieve allows our facilitators to work directly, face to face, with anything from a single year group to three year groups of students. One additional school visit would allow us to work directly with around 250 more students than last year.

remote
Provide 25 more hours of crisis counselling

The most requested service that schools look for is getting fast access to appropriate counselling for students they consider to be at-risk.

Our counselling support fund allows priority cases to be referred to local counsellors in the school area. Each additional €500 targeted at this option would support an additional 25 hours of priority counselling.

remote
Fund an extra 3 weeks of FreeText Crisis Support

YSPI provides a FreeText Crisis Information Service which is free of charge to users. Texting HELP to 50015 provides immediate 24/7 crisis information.

Our Crisis Information Service also includes running our ineedhelp.ie website which provides a single point for help, support and information for those in need of immediate assistance or longer term support.
