In response to high suicides in Finglas, the fsn was jointly established in 2004 by concerned volunteers and community-based agencies to provide access to support services for those who are in crisis and experience distress. Working in partnership with kindred organizations, the fsn fosters a community-led approach to the provision of mental health care and support, particularly suicide prevention. Our response has resulted in the development of alliances with other professional services so that immediate access to help and support is available. We also organize training and seminars on mental health care and positive coping skills and to raise awareness of suicide and suicide prevention.
We inspire, organize and sustain a community response that aims to reduce suicide in Finglas and neighboring areas by increasing mental wellness and creating hope.
