Are you feeling suicidal or self-harming, or have you lost someone to suicide? We’re here to help.
Working with Pieta, we are providing a free crisis counselling service for LGBTQ+ young people who are based in Ireland. Our therapists are friendly, welcoming and will listen to you in a safe, non-judgemental space and work through whatever is worrying you.
Here’s how you can get in touch:
- Call 085 856 9312 (9am to 5pm, Mon-Fri) and a member of the Pieta team will help make an appointment for you.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org and a therapist will get back to you about an appointment.
This service is available free of charge to LGBTQ+ young people aged 14-23 based in Ireland who are self-harming, thinking of suicide or bereaved by suicide.
All Pieta therapists are fully qualified and accredited psychotherapists, and you can talk about anything from self-harm, to school, to coming out.
Whatever you say in the session will be between you and your therapist – we only need to share information or take action if you ask us to; if we believe your life or someone else’s life is in danger; or if you are being hurt by someone in a position of trust like a teacher or parent.
Each session lasts for 50 minutes, and you may receive up to 12 sessions.
