North West STOP is a community, voluntary body that works to prevent suicide by informing educating and promoting positive suicide prevention policies throughout the west and north-west of Ireland. They cater for all age groups and we operate with a strict “no waiting list” policy. Fully qualified Garda Vetted Counsellors are located across Sligo, Leitrim, Donegal, Cavan, Longford, Mayo, & Roscommon and Galway.
Values: North West STOP value and care for each person who seeks our services. Through our experience of working with self-harm and suicide we acknowledge the very difficult life events that can lead people to hurt themselves or end their lives.
Mission: Our purpose is to provide a safe, confidential space where you can safely talk about the loss, stress, confusion, conflicts and other pain in your life. Our style of Counselling is to listen, support and perhaps help you with insight to either change what is possible to change or to live more contentedly and creatively with that which is not. We will act to intervene with appropriate support, commitment, and compassion.
Vision: We envisage a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.
