Message from the 3 T’s Charity
3Ts is a registered charity founded in 2003 to raise awareness of the issue of suicide through research, intervention & support. 2018 is the 16th year of the 3Ts Golf Tournament, supported by tournament Patron & Ambassador, Padraig Harrington and helping to raise awareness of the issue of suicide & mental health countrywide. Once again, we invite your club to enter. We hope to have at least 3,500 Irish golfers participate in 2018 at club level, each in with a chance to play the K Club Ryder Cup Course in the Final. We ask you to include us in your Club’s 2018 calendar. 3Ts does not receive any state funding, so your help is important. 3Ts fundraising supports our activities in suicide prevention. We provide education in suicide prevention & mental health through workshops, talks & activities, literature, videos, with online information & sign-posting via social media and our website www.3ts.ie. We fund innovative suicide research and lobby Government for change, calling for a Suicide Prevention Authority similar in model to the Road Safety Authority. 3 times more people die by suicide than die on our roads, yet suicide prevention receives only a fraction of the budget spent on road safety. You may have seen recent reports in the media of our Online Petition which we presented to Government calling for a Suicide Authority. The petition is still live on www.3ts.ie and has over 35,000 signatures. 3Ts receive no statutory funding but rely on our own fundraising activities and those of our supporters.
