The aim of the Student Leaders’ Congress is to promote positive mental health, help-seeking behaviour in young people, and the Cycle Against Suicide message that ‘It’s ok not to feel ok, and it’s absolutely ok to ask for help’.
The Congress brings together young adults and teachers from all over the island of Ireland in an inspiring and energetic forum comprising celebrity speakers, live entertainment, discussion and much more.
Very much a student-led event, a large portion of the day involves students: discussing projects they have engaged with, providing entertainment, conducting peer interviews and interacting with a range of mental health organisations exhibiting on the day.
The theme of this year’s Congress is ‘Together We Can.’
Students enjoying themselves at the Cycle Against Suicide Congress in the RDS today January 14th.
The Cycle Against Suicide community is determined to let people in every corner of the island of Ireland know that; it’s OK not to feel OK and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help. Together, shoulder to shoulder, we can break the cycle of suicide on the island of Ireland.
