dc.contributor.authorHSE National Office for Suicide Prevention
dc.descriptionIn 2017, the primary focus of the HSE National Office for Suicide Prevention (NOSP) remained the coordinated implementation of Connecting for Life, Ireland’s National Strategy to Reduce Suicide 2015-2020; “working towards a vision of an Ireland where fewer lives are lost through suicide and where communities and individuals are empowered to improve their mental health and wellbeing”. To progress this work during the year and also build on what the office has achieved to date, cross sectoral support, partnership working and strategic planning have been more important than ever before. Suicide prevention is everyone’s responsibility and the NOSP has maintained and strengthened links with lead agents involved in the national strategy – not just to support and monitor implementation, but also to cultivate connectedness and engagement. In 2017, funding of more than €11.9 million was allocated to suicide prevention. The NOSP invested almost 60% of this in agencies and front-line services making coordinated efforts to meet Connecting for Life objectives and actions, across seven overarching strategic goals. This report provides an overview of the significant activities taking place nationwide, and the diversity of suicide prevention projects and services delivered under Connecting for Life. There is of course, more to be done. The new structures the HSE has put in place since 1st January 2018 will transform the way in which we deliver services, in order to build a better health service and to strengthen governance and accountability. This is in line with government policy and aligns with the recommendations of the Oireachtas Report, Sláintecare.en_US
