3T’s – Turn the Tide on Suicide

Here’s some of what they are about!

3Ts (Turn the Tide of Suicide) is a registered charity in Ireland, founded in 2003 to raise awareness of the issue of suicide.  3TS raise funds to help prevent future deaths by Suicide through research, intervention & support.  3Ts receive no Government funding but rely on their own fundraising activities and those of their supporters, both private & corporate. The Charity aims to reduce the numbers of those dying by suicide through research, intervention and support.  Funds raised contribute to 3Ts activities including:

  • Training: delivery of mental health & suicide prevention training workshops
  • Lobbying: 3Ts campaign for the introduction of a National Suicide Prevention Authority, similar to the Road Safety Authority (RSA) which has significantly reduced the number of road deaths and injuries per year on Irish roads.
  • Research: 3Ts commission innovative research which it is hoped will help inform future suicide prevention strategies.  The Charity are currently providing funding support for Researchers at Trinity College Dublin for a research project “Assessing Help for Self-Harm & Suicidal Behaviour in the Emergency Department”.
  • Support: 3Ts collaborate and work in partnership with other organisations wherever possible and also provide funding support to key groups working at the coalface of mental health, suicide prevention and intervention and bereavement support. 

Whilst 3Ts activities are nationwide, a significant portion of funds raised by the Longest Day Swim will go directly towards suicide prevention initiatives and activities in the Galway area.
