Each suicide is an individual tragedy and each suicide has a devastating ripple effect on the whole community. Bereavement following a suicide is like no other bereavement and can have devastating impacts on those who are left behind: families, friends and wider communities, however suicide is not inevitable and can be prevented if the signs are recognised and support provided. This new NI Protect Life 2, 5-year strategy aims to reduce suicides by better supporting those most at risk and providing information for those affected by a loved one’s suicide. PIPS Hope & Support works under the auspices of the Protect life 2 strategy and provides a range of community and professional training workshops and programmes, counselling, an holistic range of therapies, a drop in centre, however we at PIPS H&S know that no one organisation is able to address all the factors to reduce suicide risk and prevent suicides. That is why PIPS H&S engage with and have invited a number of stakeholders to deliver their specialist services from the PIPS H&S main office in Newry. Such as Nexus NI, SHSCT Community Addiction Team, Lifeline, Dunlewey Substance Abuse, Start 360, ensuring a range of safety measures are available to anyone who needs it.
