Connecting for Life – Mid West of Ireland, The Vision

Connecting For Life – Mid West

When we work together, things can be different.

Connecting for Life, Ireland’s National Strategy to Reduce Suicide 2015-2020 sets out a vision where fewer lives are lost through suicide, and where communities and individuals are empowered to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

Connecting for Life Mid West 2017-2020 sets out specific local actions to deliver the 7 goals of the National Strategy, within the context of HSE Mid West Community Healthcare area (Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary).

This vision is to be realised through seven goals:

  1. Better understanding of suicidal behaviour
  2. Supporting communities to prevent and respond to suicidal behaviour
  3. Targeted approaches for those vulnerable to suicide
  4. Improved access, consistency and integration of services
  5. Safe and high-quality services
  6. Reduce access to means
  7. Better data and research.
