3Ts (Turn the Tide of Suicide)

3Ts (Turn the Tide of Suicide) is a registered charity (CHY15710) founded in 2003 to raise awareness of the problem of suicide in Ireland and to raise funds to help lower suicide rates through dedicated research, educational support and intervention.  The 3Ts receives no government funding but relies solely on fundraising & donations.

The No. 1 killer of young men in Ireland is not cancer, nor is it road traffic deaths, it is Suicide. Over 600 people in Ireland are estimated to die by suicide annually, or roughly 2 each day - that's 3 times more than die on our roads.  There are a staggering 12,000 presentations of self-harm annually to A & E Departments, although the true figure is believed to be circa 60,000.  

Funds raised for 3Ts contribute to a variety of projects ranging from 3Ts projects such as the provision of safeTALK Suicide Alertness Training to providing funding support to key positive mental health & suicide prevention programmes.  The charity also allocates a portion of funds raised to support other organisations working at the coalface of suicide prevention & mental health.

The charity lobbies Government to adequately resource suicide prevention, most recently campaigning for a Suicide Prevention Authority.  3Ts website www.3ts.ie is a valuable resource for anyone concerned about suicide for themselves or for another.  Follow 3ts on Twitter @3ts_irl or on Facebook.
