The first Living Links group was set up in Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary in May 2002, when a small group of local people got together in direct response to a suicide in the community. The event was tragic and cataclysmic for the people and there was a huge sense of inadequacy on the ground as to how to provide appropriate community support and a consequent sense of failure as a community.

 

 

 

 

Living Links objectives are:

  • To provide support and outreach to those bereaved by suicide
  • To increase awareness and understanding of suicide and its effects on individuals, families and communities
  • To liaise and exchange information with similar support groups nationally and internationally
  • To support and encourage relevant research
  • To produce leaflets and associated literature to be provided to survivors
  • To liaise and provide families information on health services available in the region, and the referral pathways to such services should such professional counselling be required
  • To provide and facilitate a group healing programme, on a needs basis, for the suicide bereaved
  • To encourage the suicide bereaved and/or suicide affected to establish and foster an ongoing support group among themselves.

 

Living Links would also like to thank 3Ts ( Turn the Tide of Suicide) for providing funding for our training resources.

3Ts is a registered charity working to help prevent deaths by Suicide through research, intervention and support.
