Cycle Against Suicide was founded by Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen as a result of an appearance on RTÉ’S documentary, The Secret Millionaire. The programme inspired Jim to continue to use his skills and influences to help raise awareness of mental health in Ireland and signpost people in need, to the considerable supports available for suicide prevention in Ireland.
We believe in a community-driven approach in all our activities. We will work towards more cohesion between, and awareness of, the various organisations working to prevent suicide, and provide bereavement support, in Ireland.
We understand that this is a complex issue and we remain positive and optimistic that a multi-level approach, based on the promotion of help-seeking behaviour, can result in a reduction in the number of suicides on the island of Ireland.
Together, shoulder to shoulder, we can break the cycle of suicide on the island Ireland.
