‘Conversation on Suicide’, thank you

AMACH! Would like to thank all that attended the ‘Conversation On Suicide’ last Saturday 7th March 2015. We are thrilled at how the morning went and the level of participation of all who attended. We are also delighted that a further meeting is planned and with the other commitments made on the day.

We need some time to review all the information talked about and gathered and to plan the next meeting, then we’ll update everyone.

We’d like to give a special thank you to Console, HSE West Suicide Prevention Unit and Pieta House. Also a special mention to the funders Galway Rural Development, Pobal & the Department of Environment, Community & Local Government. And again to all participants, thank you. The best outcome is that the conversation isn’t over.

Kathy Walsh,

Vice Treasurer,
