The HSE National Office for Suicide Prevention (NOSP) sits within the Community Strategy & Planning Function of the HSE and works closely with the HSE Mental Health Community Operations Function and many others. Connecting for Life, Ireland’s National Strategy to Reduce Suicide, 2015-2020 underpins the work of the NOSP and outlines a dual function for the office;
1. The NOSP is a lead agency for 16 Connecting for Life actions, a joint lead on 2 actions and a supporting partner on a further 21 actions. These include actions in the areas of communications, training and education, best practice guidelines and research and evaluation.
2. The NOSP also has a pivotal role to play in driving the implementation of Connecting for Life. The strategy mandates the NOSP to support, inform, coordinate and monitor the implementation of Connecting for Life across the HSE, government departments, statutory agencies and NGOs. As a whole-of-government strategy, Connecting for Life requires the office to provide a strategic view of progress against outcomes and targets and to report on these to the cross-sectoral steering group on a quarterly basis.
