The Irish Association of Suicidology was founded in 1996 by Dr. John Connolly, the late Dr. Michael Kelleher, and Mr. Dan Neville T.D. The IAS has been working with community, voluntary and statutory bodies since its inception to inform, educate and promote positive suicide prevention policies throughout the island of Ireland.

The IAS prides itself on being a forum where all organisations can come together and exchange knowledge regarding any aspect of Suicidology which is gained from differing perspectives and experiences. In our opinion no group, voluntary or professional has a monopoly of wisdom or expertise about suicide.  Suicide prevention is everybody’s responsibility and requires coordinated action by all parts of our society. Through its conferences and publications, the IAS highlights various aspects of suicide and endeavours to influence public policy and insure that positive action is taken to provide adequate strategies to combat this tragic problem in our society.
