Local charity offers free suicide prevention workshops to communities throughout Cork

When approached recently by people concerned at the spate of suicides in their community, Noreen Murphy, founder of suicide prevention charity Lisheens House, based in Skibbereen, Co Cork, was determined to help out a community left reeling from the aftermath of these deaths.
