Supporting Pieta House 2013 – 2016
Pieta House is a suicide and self-harm crisis centre founded by psychologist Joan Freeman. It first opened its doors in Lucan, Co. Dublin in January 2006, and there are now four Pieta House centres throughout Dublin, one in Limerick and one in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary. Three new centres will open in 2013 in Tuam, Cork and Castleisland.
Pieta House provides a professional, face-to-face, free of charge therapeutic service for people in the acute stages of distress. The unique clinically-based model developed by Pieta House is used across its five centres. Pieta House’s primary aim is to reduce suicide by helping people get through that critical phase when suicide becomes a plan rather than just an idea.
Since 2013, staff and friends of Collins McNicholas have joined together every year to run 250KM in aid of Pieta House, managing to raise almost €10,000 to date for this amazing charity. Check out our videos below!
