Minister issues SOS on suicide

Minister of State at the Department of Health Kathleen Lynch, has launched a campaign aims to get everyone talking about mental health.

Suicide or Survive (SOS) is calling on everyone in Clare to get involved in the High Tea and Talk campaign in September and start talking about mental health. SOS has been running the campaign for three years, and this year it’s going to be even bigger with more people supporting it across every county nationwide.

World Suicide Prevention Day takes place on Thursday, September 10 and to mark it SOS, with the support of Newstalk and Rabo Direct, the straight talking savings bank, will be bringing ‘High Tea and Talk’ to the nation for the month of September, in the hope of raising awareness and opening up the conversation around mental health.

SOS wants to encourage the entire nation to take some time out and have a cup of tea with friends, family or workmates and when doing so try to bring the conversation around to mental health and well-being. You can never underestimate the power of just talking, and by hosting an SOS High Tea and Talk tea morning you never know who you might help.

To get involved contact Jacqui at SOS on jacqui@suicideorsurvive.ie or 1890 577 577.
