An Riocht Minor Footballers, Kilkeel new Jerseys for suicide prevention

Seamus McCabe from PIPS Newry & Mourne described the GAA initiative as a really important development "This is a wonderful gesture by An Roicht GAA Club.  It's a great opportunity for the club and PIPS Newry & Mourne to reach out and educate people about mental health issues, not least breaking the stigma around mental health and suicide.  Between confirmed suicides and undetermined deaths, it's estimated that over 600 plus people have died by suicide over the last two years. It is new initiatives like this that can help save someone's life.
