Supporting You And Your Mental Health

Since 2007, SOSAD has worked to raise awareness and help prevent suicide in Ireland. We have worked tirelessly in our communities to help those in need feel supported and know they are not alone on their journey. SOSAD offer support and services for people who are struggling with suicidal ideation, self harming, depression, bereavement, stress and anxiety, or if you simply need to talk.

If you want to talk, we are here to listen. You can message us, call us, or call into our office.

We have seven offices based in Cavan, Louth, Meath, Monaghan and Laois from which we provide our services. 

24/7 Helpline

SOSAD have trained volunteers on call for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for anyone who may be in distress and in need of professional help and support.

Ask For Help!

Everyone experiences periods in their life when they feel low for a short amount of time and this is a normal part of life. It is only when low periods last for an extended time or the way you are feeling interferes with the everyday life that you may be suffering from depression. Asking for help is the first step in your recovery. We know how hard this may seem but you will be surprised how much better you will feel after sharing. So try to talk to someone and get the help you need!

What is Growth Mindset and why is it important? How can you develop Growth Mindset in your day to day life? A mindset is a mental attitude that determines how we understand and respond to situations. In a growth mindset, people believe that what they are capable of can be developed by putting in time and effort. Growth mindset empowers us to move through setbacks, develop resilience and improve our capabilities, rather than dwell on mistakes or be consumed by negative self-talk and self-doubt.
