County to get sui­cide preven­tion of­fi­cer again

Bray People - - Bray People -

AF­TER an ex­ten­sive cam­paign, lobby group Wick­low Against Sui­cide has an­nounced the forth­com­ing re­turn of a sui­cide preven­tion of­fi­cer to the county, fol­lowng a meet­ing with the Ju­nior Health Min­is­ter Deputy John Moloney at Dail Eire­ann last week.

‘We have taken this cam­paign to the high­est lev­els,’ said chair­man Wayne Flana­gan Tobin, who lost his own fa­ther to sui­cide. ‘We put up a very strong case in the Dail last Wed­nes­day which re­sulted in the Min­is­ter com­ing to the county just five days later.’

Mr. Flana­gan Tobin said that the meet­ing had been told that it is hoped an of­fi­cer will be in place by De­cem­ber. ‘The Min­is­ter lis­tened to the con­cerns in a gen­uine man­ner and we found it very pos­i­tive,’ he added.
