Operational since 2008, CLEAR represents a unique partnership which is part of Derry Healthy Cities. The consortium is made up of a range of community, voluntary and statutory sector representatives from across the Western Trust area, who either have a service delivery role or a strategic role in issues surrounding suicide, self-harm or mental ill-health, or who potentially come into contact with people from these categories.
The CLEAR Project offers a range of training and development opportunities for representatives and counsellors from a wide variety of Community and Voluntary sector groups based in the West of the province to address the themes of Suicide Prevention, Self-harm and Drugs and Alcohol Misuse.
We administer small grants for community and voluntary sector groups on behalf of the Public Health Agency. Through this, groups have organised a range of activities linked to the 'Take Five Steps to Wellbeing' campaign such as activity programmes, mindfulness and events that promoted and supported them to stay connected.
We work with the PHA on the development and promotion of quality standards for services promoting mental and emotional wellbeing and suicide prevention. These standards apply to all organisations providing mental and emotional wellbeing and suicide prevention services which are funded by the PHA.
The purpose of this site is to share information on project progress, areas of best practice and planned activities, training & networking events. If you would like further information about CLEAR or any information on this site please contact the CLEAR Project Manager.
