Suicide or Survive Ltd (SOS) provides services and supports aimed at suicide prevention in Ireland. SOS is client focused and has designed and is running an innovative group programme (The Eden Programme ) that provides people who have attempted or contemplated suicide with an opportunity to explore their own experiences, develop their personal skills and source avenues of support and assistance. The ultimate aim of this programme is suicide prevention. The Eden Programme is unprecedented in Ireland and is both unique and creative in its approach. Our aim is that the programme is offered nationwide.
Goal 1 – Raise awareness of mental health issues, highlighting the need for SOS programmes and for more open dialogue on suicide and its prevention
Goal 2 – Roll out the Eden therapeutic programme to fill gaps in current service provision for people at high risk of suicide
Goal 3 – Provide educational services that help people understand their own mental health and find support if they need it
Goal 4 – Increase and improve resources required for the long-term sustainability and growth of SOS
