We recently launched Suicide/Mental Health Cards. They are credit card size and easily retained on the person.
The cards contain national contact helpline numbers and helpline numbers pertinent to the Tallaght area in particular.
The launch of these cards took place at the Maldron Hotel, Tallaght on the 16th September.
Representatives of the organisations working in the area of Mental Health attended the launch along with Social
Care Professionals, Sports Clubs, Community Service Centres, Emergency Services and Schools and Colleges.
"My name is Joan Tattan-Dennis and I have the great honour of being the President of Tallaght Lions and the tremendous
joy of being the President during the launch of our long awaited website. The Lions Club is the worlds largest voluntary service organisation,
with 1.5 millions members worldwide in 220 countries and 117 clubs in Ireland. Tallaght Lions was reformed in 2009,
the previous club having been wound up in the late 1990's. The present Tallaght Lions club has worked very hard to get the many projects we have
done since being reformed, up and running. All of our projects are listed on our Projects page for all to read.
Though we have worked hard and have done projects we are very proud of for the community of Tallaght,
it has been of great enjoyment and that also is what Lions is about.
Our motto is 'We Serve' and when the work is done, the project complete, or anticipation of the fulfilling the next project, we enjoy it all.
Lions members make friends within Lions and enjoy many social events together."
