Suicide Awareness Week is continuing with campaigners calling on those who are struggling to cope to ask for help.
'Turn2me' is a service which offers a wide range of free supports over the internet, 24 hours a day.
And spokesperson Eoin O'Shea says organisers would really appreciate donations to help keep the service running: "What we really could do with is a little bit more funding because we're not supported by the government at the moment.
"If anybody would be interested in making a donation to support us, in providing the services of all but one are free for members of the public, we would be more than willing to accept those because there is a rise in suicide."
