Console.ie and their help

ACE (Askamore Community Education) had Denis O’Connor from Console to talk locally about suicide, how we as a community can watch out for signs of ill-health among our neighbours and friends and how we can all try to improve our positive mental health.

One of the very strong messages that Denis got across on the night was that Console offer a dedicated suicide helpline, which as its number implies, is available 24/7.

This number is 1800 247 100.

If anyone would like to contact Denis personally, his email is denis@console.ie.

Information on Console’s other services can be found here.
