Now Recruiting Responders Nationwide

Community Crisis Response Team Ireland is a team of volunteers who travel out to people in suicidal distress.

Our crisis line is open every night from 5pm, you can call or text us on 085-1777631.

*Please note this number is for distress calls only.

We operate from 5pm to 6am 365 days of the year. We respond to calls from people who may have spotted someone in distress, from family or friends that have discovered a loved one is thinking about suicide and to people who bravely call us on behalf of themselves.

Our volunteers are trained in advanced suicide intervention skills, Child Protection Policies, water safety, first aid and more. We not only respond to people in their homes but to any location where someone may be in distress eg towns, secluded areas and waterways etc.

In addition to the above we also carry out community patrols visiting various communities throughout the week meeting locals and informing them of our service and offering an opportunity to talk.
