Pieta House - The Centre for the Prevention of Self-Harm or Suicide

Pieta House, the Centre for the Prevention of Self-Harm or Suicide, opened its doors in January 2006 and is the first charity of its kind in Ireland. Pieta House offers a specialised treatment programme for people who have suicidal ideation or who participate in self-harming behaviours. In particular, this centre will target the people who have already attempted to take their lives the forgotten people. This service is free of charge, but donations are welcome. The specialized treatment programme offers a comprehensive service aimed at individuals and their families who are affected by:

· Multiple suicidal attempts
· Suicidal ideation
· Continuous self-harming behaviours

We make an important distinction regarding people who engage in self-harm and those who attempt to take their lives.
