Irish Association of Suicidology
The Irish Association of Suicidology (IAS) informs, educates and promotes positive suicide prevention policies throughout Ireland. Working with community, voluntary and statutory bodies the association endeavours to highlight various aspects of suicide within society to influence public policy and ensure that positive strategies and action are taken to reduce instances of suicide.
Suicide prevention is everybody’s business and requires coordinated action by all parts of society. The IAS provides a forum where expertise and knowledge on all aspects of suicidology can be shared.
We have also produced a series of supplementary factsheets.
