Welcome to alive2thrive.ie, a website promoting positive mental health in Sligo and Leitrim, where you will find services, resources, tips and general information.
Connecting for Life Engagement Workshops
Following on from ReachOut, Ireland’s previous strategy to reduce suicide, Connecting for Life is our new National strategy to reduce suicide (2015-2020). The HSE, in partnership with other organisations, is developing a Suicide Prevention Action Plan for Counties Sligo and Leitrim. As part of this we are having a public engagement process to listen to the views and ideas of the local people on mental health and suicide prevention.
We are very keen to hear the views of as many people as possible and invite you to attend one of the workshops or share your thoughts through the online survey. We are hosting six facilitated workshops throughout each County and details of each can be found below.
All contributions will be carefully considered and reviewed against what has worked already here in Ireland and internationally, and in line with the new National Framework for Suicide Prevention.
