SOSAD ON HAND IF NEEDED OVER CHRISTMAS

22 December 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

SOSAD Carrickmacross have this week expressed thanks to everyone for their continuous support and donations throughout the year.

The organisation, which deals with the problems arising from suicide, said in a statement to The Northern Standard:

“We have been yet again, blown away from the support of everyone in Monaghan and how much more we are all willing to work as a community to help anyone affected.

“Without the help and generosity of everyone SOSAD would not be able to continue to help people and their families that have been affected by suicide or anyone with feelings of despair, depression or suicidal thoughts.

“Christmas time can be an especially emotional time for families bereaved by suicide. Family members and friends may have feelings of guilt, anxiety, anger and despair.

“Many families see Christmas as an ordeal to be endured and not enjoyed. Thoughts of the upcoming festive season may bring feelings of dread as memories of Christmas past spent with their loved ones who are no longer here bring heartbreak and sadness.

“SOSAD’s aim is to remind the most vulnerable in our community at this festive time, whether it is due to financial pressure, grief or feelings of sadness we are here to listen.”

SOSAD can be contacted through their 24 hour line at Christmas and all year around. There will always be someone on the other end of the phone to listen and help.
