Need to talk? Pieta House and other organisations for the prevention of suicide

Dear Readers,

I was watching the Late Late show last night, and there was a feature about suicide in Ireland,
and the role of Pieta House in Dublin.. Pieta House, Lucan Road, Lucan, Co. Dublin
Tel: +353 (01) 601 0000 | Email: mary@pieta.ie
Their facebook page is here  and here is a link to their website.


This song was recorded in aid of Pieta House, to raise awareness of their work and raise much needed funds.
It
features Ministers, Senators and TDs from across the Irish political
spectrum. All are current members of the Oireachtas (Irish Parliament). None
of them had ever sung before but they were willing to take part to
support the great work done by Pieta House, luckily the song also
features the talent and wonderful voices of the Lucan and Dublin Gospel
Choirs.Please support Pieta House by sharing this video and
downloading the song from iTunes or donations can be made here
All the proceeds from the sale of the
single goes directly to the charity.

It reminded me that I had collected some information about the various support organizations in Ireland that you can contact when you need to talk…you can find the information here 
I am also pasting in the information below :
Ok, so you have moved lock, stock and barrel to be where you want, with
the person you want to be with, or the job you always wanted, or maybe
you are returning home after many years abroad, and all of sudden you
are lost….and you need to talk…below is is a list of organisations in Ireland that you can contact via telephone or email.

The http://www.families.ie/
website is a project developed jointly by the Family Support Agency and
the Health Service Executive (North Western Area), Regional Children’s
Services.
The website was developed in response to a frequently heard comment: ‘we
don’t know what’s happening out there, even in our own area’.
“families.ie” aims to inform everyone (parents, children, and teenagers,
as well as those who work to support families) what is ‘out there’ in
terms of services, information and support available.
The Health Service Exexutive and the Family Support Agency are keen to
see the website grow and develop further, and hope that it will soon be
expanded from the north-west region to become a national resource.
Please go to ‘contact us’ if you want to contribute to or comment on
this site.
