Limavady Initiative for the Prevention of Suicide

Limavady Initiative for the Prevention of Suicide (L.I.P.S) is a new charity set up to help those struggling with mental health or suicide. After the death of two young men, the families and concerned community members pulled together to create something to help. Over the years Limavady has lost several lives, mainly young men, to suicide and L.I.P.S hopes to reach out to those struggling. Sheena Morrison, L.I.P.S treasurer, talks about the charity and why it is so necessary.
