Northwest STOP needs support to help it meet the growing demand for its lifesaving work

The future of a north west suicide-prevention group is at stake unless it gets government support for its life-saving work.

Manorhamilton-based Northwest STOP was founded 15 years ago by families bereaved through suicide.

It receives no State support despite a growing demand for its counselling services for those in distress and those bereaved.

Chairman Tom O Reilly outlined the situation now facing the organisation.
