Next Tuesday’s lecture will feature a variety of speakers both from within the HSE and from outside organisations, including Brian Higgins, CEO of Pieta House, to outline the Pieta House services in the Mid-West and the work of Pieta House on suicide prevention.

Also speaking is Aoife Boland, area lead of Mental Health Engagement in the Mid-West, who will speaks on her work to ensure that the views and experiences of service users and their supporters are at the heart of the planning and delivery of local mental health services.

The event is supported by the Little Things campaign via the Mid-West Suicide Prevention Office and will also aim inform the public on the common myths and misconceptions around admission to an acute psychiatric unit.
