There has been a huge reaction to the “most intense episode” of Inside The K yet.
The Virgin Media series following Gardai has gained huge traction over the last few weeks.
In the latest episode, Gards were seen dealing with mental health issues and suicide, in what was deemed the “most intense” episode to date, with many saying they were left overwhelmed by what they saw.
Take a look at the massive response online:
This episode of “Inside the K” is a tough watch but a necessary one. We are seeing the extreme cases here but there is a bigger picture to this. There are so many young and old people struggling throughout the country. There is no shame in asking for help 👍 #InsideTheK

Say what you want about guards, call them what you want, but I have nothing but the highest respect for them watching tonight’s episode #insidethek

#insidethek was particularly hard to watch this evening… A grim reminder of what Gardai are dealing with every day and the lack of mental health support out there! It’s just not good enough… There is no excuse for anyone who is in vital need of services being left waiting!

Did not think that episode of #insidetheK would hit me that much… Fair play to any guard who has to go to those situations and deal with that 👏👏

Knocked sideways by that episode of #InsideTheK 🥺
The Gardai don’t get near enough credit for some of the things they are dealing with on a daily basis due to the state of the mental resources in this country. No more evident then by the death of their own colleague.

Inside the K tonight 👏🏼 a serious issue that needs to be addressed in this country and how helpless even the garda are. My heart goes out to some of the people out there!

As a volunteer with Limerick Suicide Watch I see on a weekly basis the compassion & care the Gardaí provide to those struggling with Mental Health. They will be one of the first at the scene & see things those in the hospital can only imagine. An important eye opener. #InsideTheK
