Losing a loved one through suicide is one of the most difficult and challenging situations any family will ever face. In the days, months and even years following your loss you will be confronted with questions you may never find the answers to. At Talk To Tom we have found that family group therapy can help you through this heartbreaking time.
That's why since our very first day we have been continuously developing and growing our programme of courses and training schedules.
We were the very first organisation in Ireland to deliver QPR suicide prevention training .
We have trained over 2,000 people for free, in the life saving programme, since grandfathering it into Ireland. Our current roster of education programmes offers courses ranging from how to spot signs of suicide to how to improve your own mood and well-being as well as important training on how to over see your children's internet usage.
Our group sessions include family and friend bereavement counselling as well as coping with depression and bereavement support groups.
These provide a safe environment to share your experiences with others who are going through similar circumstances.
Since our inception Talk To Tom as continued to make inroads into the community with the goal of ending the stigma surrounding mental health, asking for help and suicide.This is achieved through are training programmes which to date have been rolled out in schools, public bodies such as An Garda Síochána, and many businesses. We also strive to support other like minded organisations.
Talk To Tom continue to pledge financial and emotional support to those bereaved through suicide. We strive to be a shoulder to those in our community suffering the loss of a loved one or friend. Our bereavement support services include care packages to families in the days following a death as well as ongoing private and group bereavement counselling programmes.
Please give what you can and help us make a difference for our community .
