  • Deliver an educational programme - raising awareness of suicide 
  • Fund small projects with defined objectives
  • lobby for improved medical services and intervention
  • create a network of 'buddies' who can act as a listening ear.
  • Create a loved ones against suicide network to disseminate information and other support services
  • Referrals to mainstream services where required
  • Raise awareness of depression and its effects which are often hidden
  • Annual programme of events
