The National Office for Suicide Prevention, within the HSE Mental Health Division, continues to work to realise the vision of an Ireland where fewer lives are lost through suicide. Connecting for Life is the current national government strategy to reduce suicide in Ireland. It is broadly acknowledged that suicide is a complex public health and societal issue. This means that the implementation of a strategy to reduce suicide requires a range of coordinated approaches across all sectors of government and society. CfL, therefore, is a whole-of-society, cross-cutting strategy, which was developed through a comprehensive and integrated planning process. A significant number of government departments and agencies are involved in leading the implementation of the strategy at national level and numerous statutory and voluntary agencies are involved at local level.
