Lough Derg offers day of support for suicide

For the first time Lough Derg will hold a special day dedicated to supporting those who are living with suicide and for those involved in ministry and support services.


The ‘Living with Suicide’ day offers those affected, either directly or indirectly, the opportunity for deeper understanding and support to make sense of it all.


Fr Cathal Deery, a priest of the Clogher diocese who also ministers on Lough Derg, and the event organiser said: “Every year I encounter more people who live with the struggles of suicide and who search for answers to their questions. Many people come to Lough Derg seeking help, and to find meaning for what is happening in their life. But equally so, we are aware that many people live in silence and in isolation. We want to help, and that is why we have organised this day.”


The Living with Suicide Programme on  September 25 is a guided day and presents three areas of focus delivered by Paul Kelly, Founder Director, Console; Bronagh Starrs, Psychotherapist; Christy Kinneally, broadcaster.
