Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs

Youth Mental Health: Discussion

Mr. Jim Ryan:

No, it is not. I can get more information, especially from my colleague, Mr. John Meehan, from our National Office for Suicide Prevention. I can report to the committee on that. That office would have a day-to-day relationship with those organisations. The country has responded in a wide variety of ways to suicide and the threat of suicide. We try to support that within our resources and also in ensuring that the models being used are appropriate and evidence-based.
