  • Cycle Against Suicide – Community Buddy Programme

Cycle Against Suicide is inviting community clubs and associations to complete our free ‘Community Buddy’ Programme and be trained to provide ‘Buddy’ support in their community.

The Cycle Against Suicide Buddy Programme prioritises peer-to-peer action as a means to identify and help those who may be vulnerable.  Our programme trains and equips participants with the practical, hands-on skills and knowledge they need to deliver support to those in mental health distress in their local communities.

Our aim is to train and deploy ‘Community Buddies’ across Ireland.  We invite local clubs and associations that have personnel who are already Garda vetted to nominate themselves to complete our ‘Community Buddy’ training programme. This training, delivered over 2 days or 4 evenings, is free of charge for your club/association and will equip you to provide much-needed support for those in your community who maybe struggling with mental health distress.
