Pieta House is the centre for suicide and self-harm in Ireland. We provide crisis intervention services to people that have attempted suicide, are experiencing suicide ideation or are engaging in self-harm behaviour. We bring people through their darkest times to a place of personal stability by providing them with the help and support they need when they need it. We treat everyone with respect and dignity, through compassion and care. We generate and nourish hope and above all, we empower.
By providing one to one counselling, free of charge, without the need for medical referral or prior psychiatric evaluation, and in a non-institutional community setting we remove many of the common barriers to accessing mental health care.
Around 500 people per year die by suicide in Ireland – three times the number of fatalities on Irish roads. To date, we've helped over 28,000 people in Ireland. That's 28,000 lives changed, bettered and saved. And we’re not done yet. Our vision is for a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance. Pieta House is taking a proactive approach to suicide and self-harm in Ireland. We want to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
