Derg Credit Union and Kilrush Credit Union are absolutely delighted to support Cycle Against Suicide in the delivery of their evidence-based secondary schools’ programme – HEADSTRONG.
This programme is designed as a whole school approach to mental health. It supports mental health education in schools, reduces stigma, promotes resilience and fosters a sense of belonging among students.
This is so important as mental health presents in teen years. The World Health Organisation (2018), states that every 40 seconds worldwide, someone dies by suicide. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15 to 29 years old. Ireland sadly, ranks 4th highest on teen suicides.
This highlights the importance of Cycle Against Suicide’s work in secondary schools and Derg and Kilrush Credit Unions are delighted to support this important initiative.
