Pieta House - Mind Your Buddy Information
The club are delighted to announce the launch of the Pieta House 'Mind Ur Buddy' campaign, in conjunction with the ongoing national 'Mind Our Men' initiative.
Everyone will at some stage in their life be affected by suicide, and with the stigma attached to mental health, people, especially men, in need are often too afraid to come forward and look for help, suffering in silence until it might be too late. With this in mind, Pieta House have started this initiatvie in GAA clubs all around Dublin with the hope of helping those who need support, and reducing the tragic number of suicides, again especially among young males, in Ireland. All contact will be strictly confidential, and it is not just men who can avail of the service. Anyone who feels like they might need help can get in touch with either of the contacts.
Mental health issues are a terrible burden that no one should have to deal with alone, so please, if you, or someone you know needs help, please do not be afraid to get in touch.
