Our Research

Since our foundation in 2003, 3Ts has supported innovative research in the fields of suicide & suicide prevention.  We've identified, funded and participated in key research projects to help fill knowledge gaps. We hope that our research can help inform future suicide prevention policies and ultimately help prevent future deaths by suicide. 

Accessing Help for Self-Harm and Suicidal Behaviour in the Emergency Department: currently underway

Phase 2 - the experience of family members & companions

Phase 1 studied the experience of service-users themselves and revealed the need for a back to basics approach to patient care.  The research is funded by 3Ts and the Irish Reserach Council (New Foundations Grant) and is conducted by a team at Trinity College Dublin School of Nursing and Midwifery.  

Phase 2 of our research is currently underway with interim findings expected in Autumn 2023. Phase 2 will study the experiences of family members and companions of those attending the emergency department with suicidal behaviours or self-harm.
