Pieta House looks set to expand its intervention service into Co. Clare.
The suicide prevention charity is already offering bereavement counselling services in Ennis, at premises operated by the Ennis Mental Health Association.
However, up until this point, the nearest intervention and prevention service is located in Mungret in Co. Limerick.
Last year, 140 people from Clare were supported by Pieta House at one of its centres but now they are close to announcing that this service will be offered here too.
Tom McEvoy of Pieta House says confirmation of the news could come within weeks.
