Suicide and depression major problems for young Irish in New York


Despite all the help offered by her organisation and by the Aisling Irish Community Center, Siobhan Dennehy states that there are some people who will simply not ask for help. ‘This is why organisations like us are willing to work with anybody in order to find better ways to reach our target audience and get people to ask for help...because you can lead a horse to water but you cannot get him to drink. We want people to know that we will help anybody with anything they are going through. We just want to strongly emphasise to people who may be suffering that we are here, here to help, so please come in if you are in trouble.’
