Cycle Against Suicide are fundraising for our school’s programme One in three young people in Ireland will experience some form of mental health issue in any given year, with Ireland having the fourth highest teen suicide rate in the EU region. For the majority of individuals living with a mental health problem or mental illness, the first onset of their symptoms began when they were teenagers, and evidence shows that early intervention is critical if treatment is to have the most positive outcomes for the future life chances of affected young people. Our school’s programme is about building resilience amongst young people.
