Joan Freeman

Joan Freeman received a People of the Year Award for her commitment and dedication to the prevention of suicide and self-harm. Having seen a gap in services, Joan was inspired to close her own counselling business and put her home on the line to create the first Pieta House in Lucan in 2006. The only service of its kind in Ireland, it provides counselling, support and advice for those who are actively suicidal, who may be contemplating suicide, or who self-harm.

 

A psychologist by profession, and author of Cover Up: Understanding Self-Harm, Joan wanted a service that embraces the broken lives of people in our community and that would be strong enough to help the most vulnerable. From humble beginnings, today Pieta House boasts five centres in Dublin and Limerick with over 60 staff, and is a real source of hope for those who pass through its doors. The Award was presented by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD.
