"As someone who has a mental illness and also has friends with mental health issues - the information that was provided is essential. I will 100% be recommending this to others. Thank you! I feel really glad that a programme like this exists."
Student, Ulster University.
“The programme was exceptionally informative and has given me the confidence to ask more direct questions in the appropriate circumstances. Despite the serious nature of the subject there was humour too which was helpful.”

PIPS Programmes CIC was established in 2009 as a not for profit social enterprise that develops and delivers training to improve emotional health and safety.
Our training programmes range from an introduction to mental health for pupils entering post primary education to suicide prevention training for police officers.
Our training programmes can be delivered by us but we also offer a 'Train the Trainer' option which allows clients to integrate our training into their curriculum.
We have been awarded a National Award at the National Training Awards. The University of Ulster won the Irish University Welfare Campaign of the Year using our programmes.
Creating highly resilient and suicide safer environments
'The programme was exceptional. I found it to be the perfect mix of information, essential guidance and humour. It was a really enjoyable and eye opening workshop'
Police Officer, PSNI.
'Very good training. Engaging and easy to take part. Didn’t feel any pressure like some trainers give to give answers quickly. Really enjoyed and very informative.'
Staff member, Bangor University.
'Good to have someone talk openly about a subject that still holds the old fashioned ‘taboo’ tag to it. Talking about suicide does not encourage it. Thank you for sharing your expertise and time with us.'
