A Guide to Developing a Local Co-ordinated Crisis Response Plan for the Traveller Community 2018

Offaly Traveller Movement in partnership with the local HSE Resource Officer for Suicide Prevention and the HSE Traveller Health Unit, recently launched A Guide to Developing a Local Co-ordinated Crisis Response Plan for the Traveller Community 2018”. This Guide was developed in response to the increased number of suicide deaths that have occurred within the Traveller community and the need for a co-ordinated response when such incidences occur. It provides a framework for developing a Local Co-ordinated Crisis Response Plan for the Traveller community which is activated following the occurrence of an attempted suicide, suicide or unexpected death. It is hoped that this Plan will facilitate the co-ordination of multi-agency responses and will ensure more support for individuals and families who are experiencing these crisis situations. This Guide is in line with Goal 3 of Connecting for Life Midlands Louth Meath 2018-2020: ‘To target approaches to reduce suicidal behaviour and improve mental health among priority groups’,
