The Pavee Point youth Programme received funding through Connected Communities at the National Youth Council of Ireland to investigate Traveller youth mental health. Given the 11% Traveller suicide rate and the fact that over 52% of Travellers are under the age of 20, the area of youth mental health is a troubling one for the Traveller community. Research is taking place through a series of workshops nationally throughout April and May. A final report will be made available in June 2014. If you have any questions or wish to get involved in the research, please contact John Williams, Youth Programme Coordinator on
