EDUCATION

The group works closely with statutory and voluntary organisations such as HSE, Console, Pieta House and SOS in organising and funding education programmes with regard to suicide awareness. Examples of this activity are the running of Wellness Days by SOS, as well as the safeTALK and ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) courses by the HSE. The group organises and publicises the courses prior to each event and participates in the running of them. GELS provide and pay for the venue as well as incidental expenses such as tea/coffee or advertising.
