The report card warns that one in 10,000 Irish youth aged 15-19 will die by suicide. The report further shows that in younger teens, aged 11-15, “more than 22% report having experienced two or more psychological symptoms more than once a week.”

Our schools’ programme, of which many schools in Limerick and Clare participate, is about educating students around mental health, addressing stigma and building resilience.
