    Thank you to all Our Supporters!

    The essential work that we do at Console would not be possible without you.

    Find out how to support Console

Console was established in 2002 by Paul Kelly after he had experienced the grief of losing a loved one by Suicide.

Through his loss, Paul recognised a need for a dedicated Suicide Prevention, Intervention and Postvention Service here in Ireland.

Since then Console has developed into a National Organisation supporting people in Suicidal Crisis and those Bereaved by Suicide through Professional Counselling, Support and Helpline Services.

Console is a National Service with Centres in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Kerry, Athlone, Wexford, Mayo and Kildare. Console is also located in London, United Kingdom.


Whatever the reason for your visit, we are very glad you are here.

  • If you are concerned for yourself, rest assured that you have found a place of safety and compassion.
  • If you have suffered a bereavement through suicide, we wish to provide you with hope, comfort and compassion.
  • If you are concerned for someone close to you, or would like to find more information we hope we can provide you with the direction and support that you need.
