The catalyst for Cycle Against Suicide is Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen. Jim was visiting a Suicide Awareness group in Dublin 15 as part of RTÉ'S documentary, The Secret Millionaire, which aired in July 2012. Noticing the huge impact that this programme had on people, Jim decided that he had to use his skills and influences to help raise awareness for the supports available for suicide prevention in Ireland.The core team are an integral part of this initiative and are just as passionate about this cause as Jim.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) was founded in Ireland in 1844. It is the largest voluntary charitable organisation in Ireland. During its history it has helped people in need through a Famine, a Civil War, a War of Independence, two World Wars and several economic recessions. Our focus is on practical approach to dealing with poverty, alleviating its effects on individuals and families through working primarily in person-to-person contact by a unique system of family visitation and seeking to achieve social justice and equality of opportunity for all citizens.
