ABOUT THE PROGRAMME


Mojo National Office

Mojo Men is a not-for-profit (training and development) national company that works in partnership with local organisations to build their capacity to engage men who are in distress and at risk of suicide.

Our vision is that men at risk of suicide feel empowered to transform their lives and to create positive social change.

Mojo works to reduce the number of male suicides in Ireland by upskilling local organisations to run Mojo’s (skills building and personal development) training programmes with at risk men.

The Mojo Projects facilitate training programmes that transform the lives of men by working with them to:

Build their mental and physical fitness.

Develop their ability to set goals and create future plans.

Build social connections.

Derek McDonnell is the CEO. With funding from the National Office for Suicide Prevention he is working with multiple organisations to upscale Mojo Projects across Ireland. You can contact him by email derek@mojo.ngo  or on 087 66 00 872.
