One day Wellness workshop | Suicide or Survive

Wellness in the Community

SUICIDE OR SURVIVE is dedicated to removing the stigma associated with mental health and suicide prevention. A major part of our work is giving people the tools to improve their own mental wellness. As part of that work we have developed the “Wellness Workshop” which continues to inspire and enhance the lives of those who have participated in it.

Places at the “Wellness Workshop” are normally €200 per delegate but SOS is currently running a series of workshops across the nation that are being offered free of charge thanks to the support of Vodafone Ireland Foundation.  Please see below for details for confirmed workshop dates or alternatively contact Louise to enquire when the next wellness workshop is coming to your area on telephone number 1890 577 577 or by email .

Wellness in the Workplace

The symptoms of stress-related pressure can manifest themselves in both people’s personal lives and in the workplace.  To address this SOS has launched the successful “Wellness Workshop” programme as an employee course – available for Irish businesses of any size.  The “Wellness Workshop” will focus on both the personal and business life of participants but in particular on work-related pressures.

Any organisation interested in  running this course for their employees should contact Louise on 1890 577 577 to discuss the options and costs.
