Nenagh College receives Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Award

On Friday last, September 23rd, the now annual Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School Awards ceremony was held at the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham. These awards recognised the immense efforts of 83 schools around the island of Ireland who have completed the Ambassador School Programme, and become actively involved in mental health promotion. The Ambassador School Programme, one aspect of a wide range of Cycle Against Suicide initiatives, is school-led, and involves the completion of “Five Gears” over the course of a year, all of which are aimed at raising awareness of the message that “It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help”.

Nenagh College was awarded the prestigious status of Ambassador School by Cycle Against Suicide in recognition of its fulfilment of the Five Gears, and its exceptional commitment to the promotion of positive mental health. The school was represented at the event by Link Teacher, Shauna Madden Murphy and students Emma Carey and Sarah Slattery. They are pictured with Jim Breen the founder of Cycle Against Suicide and the Ombudsman for Children Dr Niall Muldoon.
