Cycle Against Suicide is an initiative started by the Irish entrepreneur Jim Breen. Its main purpose is to raise awareness of the considerable help and supports that are available for anyone battling depression, self-harm, at risk of suicide or those bereaved by suicide.
The Cycle Against Suicide Community is determined to let people in every corner of Ireland know that:
“It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help.”
Bailieborough Community School is delighted to be an anchor school for Cycle Against Suicide and to get involved under the guidance of its link teacher Ms. Mc Mullen.
On Thursday 27th April 2017 Cycle Against Suicide will stop en route at Bailieborough Community School who will provide the cyclists with refreshments and facilities. Some of our students are participating in the cycle and will be accompanied by Mr Carragher and Ms Corrie.
It is hoped that the peleton will arrive at the school around 1pm approximately. Once the cyclists have been nourished & refreshed our first year, second year, transition year, leaving certificate applied year one and fifth year students will make their way to the PE hall for the Cycle Against Suicide Event.
This event will form the highlight of our Wellfest Week and is organised by Bailieborough Community School in conjunction with Bailieborough Mental Health Organisation and Cavan County Council under the direction of Cavan Sports Partnership as well as the Social Inclusion Section.
“Shoulder to shoulder we can break the cycle of suicide.”
