In 2021, North West STOP provided over 1,700 hours of counselling to people with mental health difficulties. With demand ever increasing our services will be expanding in the year ahead to provide training to individuals and groups in suicide awareness and prevention.
Our primary source of funding comes from individuals who support our service through fundraising efforts such as the VHI Women's Mini Marathon. Each €40 donated pays for one counselling session through our service.
Our aim is to ensure that all people in the region are empowered to create an environment in which mental health struggles are dealt with at the earliest possible opportunity.
