About Pieta House
The charity opened over nine years ago with Lucan in County Dublin being the centre of operations. Since 2006 Pieta House has helped nearly 17,000 people in suicidal distress or engaging in self-harm, and opened seven subsequent centres, three in the greater Dublin area - Ballyfermot, Tallaght and Finglas - and four further centres to cater for the rest of the country in Mungret, Tuam, Roscrea and Castleisland.
