          Hello all

          I have been asked to get some recommendations for mental health support professionals in the south Munster area (I suppose Cork, South Tipp, East Limerick area would be best). The person requesting isn't currently in a position to be more definitive about what kind of support they need, so if you could post or PM me with details of someone that you would recommend in general and contact details, that would be great.

          (I'm also going to post this in the other threads that we've had about mental health issues.)

          Thanks
          SRG

            If they are currently unsure of what kind of support they are in need of IMHO(and from my own experience) they would be best suited to talking to their GP and having their GP, who should know the particulars and be able to give the best advice in who to go to for more specialised help, contact the relevant organisation/support agency etc.

              Thanks ol, will pass that on.

              Nevertheless, they have asked for help in the form of recommendations so if anyone has been particularly impressed with someone that they have been to see, these details are also welcome.

                I spent a fantastic and powerful hour at the launch of Cork leg of the Cycle Against Suicide yesterday afternoon with Jim Breen and Conor Cusack, 2 amazing men who are so passionate and articulate and driven in their goal to fight this God awful thing.

                My wife is involved with the CAS this year and I'm trying to drum up as much support as I can so if there is anybody reading this who can or knows of people who can help please get in touch. They desperately need accommodation for all involved, up to 1,500 cyclists in total, at each stop over (see the website for the route) so anybody who could open up their home for a night it would be a fantastic gesture.

                They also need drivers and vehicles, cars and vans, so again if anybody is in a position to volunteer their time or perhaps convince somebody (employer/local car dealer?) to donate a vehicle for 2 weeks again that would be a fantastic gesture.

                    Fantastic talk by Bressie on his own personal struggle with general anxiety disorder and depression.

                    Too long to watch? Long story short - tell someone, ANYONE about what you are going through. You are not alone!

                      Just back from a funeral of a friend of mine who decided to call a halt to it, 34 and a good future ahead of him after battling a lot of issues, a good looking outgoing lad who was extremely talented at whatever he did, such a bloody waste.

                        My sincere condolences GS. It's truly hateful to lose someone that way.

                          Cheers Chips, really sad situation, completely deflated, I went to the match yesterday which was a nice distraction but the funeral really brought home the finality and sadness of the situation.
