Pieta is the largest provider of suicide prevention and counselling services in the country. Our goal is to bring the highest standard of professional counselling free of charge to anyone who needs it. One of our core values is to treat everyone with respect and dignity. We are rooted in compassion and care. We generate and nourish hope and we empower. Pieta’s three main pillars of practice are prevention, intervention, and postvention.
Pieta’s prevention services include The Resilience Academy and the Amber Flag. These are awareness driving initiatives to instil and empower young people with coping mechanisms to prevent them potentially incurring suicidal or self-harm thoughts in the future.
Pieta’s intervention model is our suicidal ideation and self-harm counselling therapy. Our strength based and solution focused method provides clients with a new perspective on the problems they’re experiencing now.
Postvention practice is our Suicide Bereavement service. We provide free counselling, therapy and support to those who have been bereaved by suicide. This service provides Suicide Bereavement Liaison Officers within 8 weeks of a death by suicide, and Suicide Bereavement Counselling from 8 weeks on.
We also operate a national Freephone helpline (1800 247 247) and have dedicated teams across Research, Advocacy, Fundraising, Marketing, HR & Finance.
What are we looking for?
Our goal is to bring the highest standard of professional counselling free of charge to anyone who needs it. We want to work with dedicated and passionate individuals who want to change the face of suicide and self-harm in Ireland.
