Ireland’s National Strategy to Reduce Suicide 2015-2020

The strategy document provides a detailed and clear plan to achieve each of the goals it proposes, with defined actions and a lead agency and key partners in place for each individual objective (Government Departments, HSE, NGO partners and community groups). This action plan will be supported by robust implementation and governance structures and resourcing and communications frameworks.

Monitoring and evaluation will be embedded into the implementation process, with an accompanying outcomes framework in place, which will allow progress to be tracked and the impact of the Strategy to be objectively measured against baseline indicators.

The National Office for Suicide Prevention’s role and authority given to support the implementation of the strategy is clearly set out.
