About Pieta House
Pieta House, the suicide and self-harm crisis centre, officially opened its doors in Lucan, Co. Dublin in January 2006. The unique clinically based model developed by Pieta House is used across the five centres in Dublin and Limerick. There are also active discussions in progress to open centres in Galway, Cork and Roscrea. Pieta House provides a professional, face to face, free of charge therapeutic service for people in the acute stages of distress. Its 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 2006, Pieta House has grown to almost 70 therapists and staff. Demand for their services is constantly on the rise. To date over 6,000 people have been seen and helped by Pieta House. Pieta House’s vision is that no-one in Ireland should be more than 100 kilometres from a Pieta House centre where they can avail of the clinical services at that time of crisis.

Cancer in Ireland
Ireland’s cancer rate is one of the highest in the world. One in three of us will be diagnosed with cancer during our life time and it is estimated that by 2020, 43,000 new cases will be diagnosed. Latest data from the National Cancer Registry (NCRI) shows that nearly 30,000 people were diagnosed with cancer in Ireland in 2011.These stark figures mean that there is an ever increasing demand for the direct patient care services provided by the Irish Cancer Society.
