  • Technology, Mental Health and Suicide Prevention in Ireland; a Good Practice Guide was published in 2015 by Reach Out Ireland and the HSE NOSP. The document provides good practice guidelines for the safe delivery of online mental health information and support. Download here.

National quality standards for the provision of suicide bereavement standards:

The NOSP, Console, and Turas le Cheile bereavement support service worked together to develop the National Quality Standards for the Provision of Suicide Bereavement Services. The resource was created to establish national standards for all levels of suicide bereavement support services in Ireland. This practical document will help to ensure a consistent quality of such services nationwide and is as helpful for existing services as it is for new ones. Download here.
