All Participants to receive the Apex Clinic Suicide Watch Certificate

Suicide is preventable and the symptoms associated with suicide are highly treatable.

We believe that the high rate of suicide in Ireland is totally unacceptable and with proper resources and intelligent initiatives the general public can work as a catalyst for change.

Our mission is to significantly reduce the incidents of suicide in Ireland by taking a unique approach to suicide prevention. We intend to educate the general public on the warning signs and put in place a network of contact numbers as a resource and a step by step protocol to follow when the risk of suicide is suspected.

When a risk of suicide is suspected never ever leave it to the person themselves to seek help, but learn the procedures to follow and possibly prevent a serious injury or even save a life.
