Do you think you could spare 3 hours of your time and by doing so you could possibly help prevent somebody from committing suicide? Tullamore Lions Club and the HSE have got together to organize 2 safeTalks that are a 3 hour programme that teaches people how to identify people who are considering suicide. The programme teaches participants how to become 'suicide alert' and how to be able to recognize and engage with people who may be contemplating suicide.

On Saturday 4th Febuary members of Tullamore Lions Club will be in the Bridge Centre Shopping Centre signing up people to participate in the safeTalk programmes. The two safeTalks will be taking place in Tullamore on February 20th and 27th in the Lanello Centre. This is the second year that the Club has facilitated Josephine Rigney who is the Suicide Prevention Officer with the HSE into getting people to participate in the programme. If ONE life can be saved by people attending this programme then it is extremely worthwhile.

If you are interested in attending these safeTalks you can also sign up by contacting any of the following Tullamore Lions Club members:

Together we can make a difference.
