SOSAD Ireland is an organisation committed to helping anyone affected by suicide or depression and is extremely lucky to have over 300 skilled, dedicated and passionate volunteers who do everything they can to help others.
This year has proved to be exceptionally busy with close to 1,500 people turning to the charity for the help and support they needed.
As this busy year draws to a close, SOSAD Ireland would like to thank the many individuals and organisations who have helped or supported the charity in any way.
Thankfully they have a huge amount of supporters who recognise that, as a charity that still gets no public funding, none of the services we provide would be possible, and many people would have nowhere to go if they needed suicide interventions, counselling and suicide bereavement support.
All the SOSAD volunteers are delighted to be able to help so many people and are always willing to do everything they can to help anyone who contacts us.
Founder Peter Moroney and all the volunteers in SOSAD Ireland would like to wish everyone a very peaceful and happy Christmas and we appeal to everyone to look out for others over the Christmas and New Year period. Unfortunately this Christmas will be very tough for a lot of people, so please remember this and watch out for each other.
Sometimes a little bit of kindness or friendship can be enough to help someone.
The SOSAD Ireland’s emergency support lines will be open over Christmas, just in case anyone can’t cope and needs urgent support.
If you are worried about any member of family, friends, work colleagues or a member of your community please contact our 24 hour helpline on Dundalk 042-93-27311.
We have four other branches in the north east and information for the helplines can be found on our national website www.sosadireland.ie.
Our office will close on the 21st December and will re-open on the 3rd January 2013.
