Peer Support & Suicide Prevention

Peer Support & Suicide Prevention


At the core of our service offering, are our crisis cafes. Here we provide a safe place for people to come and chat to us over a cup of tea, and we will signpost them to relevant supports after learning more about why they came to us in the first place.

Our Crisis Centres/Cafes are the first line of defence when it comes to suicide prevention. We open from 8pm in the evening on a Friday and Saturday night until 1am (Limerick) or 2am (Ennis (Saturday night only)). This is because 11pm at night is now the most prevalent time for someone to take their own life in Ireland.

We have a team of counsellors who are finishing up their college courses and come to us to gain experience. We will pair you with these counsellors for a period of 8 weeks after you come see us in the Crisis Centre. Your counsellor will speak with you on topics that you want to talk about. Our counsellors come from all walks of life and have a wide range of life experience. They are available to support you through your difficult time.

Whether it's a friend, colleague or loved one, we will show you how to recognise a number of different conditions in a person and how to signpost them to the best available help. We provide this course free of charge to the general community.
