A New Focus for Suicide Prevention: a one day conference
On 10 September 2013 SANE (the mental health charity) is gathering at Toynbee Hall in Central London to share the findings of its five-year programme of qualitative suicide research and to discuss how they can be best used to prevent suicide and suicidal distress.
Guest speakers include Professor Matthew Ratcliffe (Department of Philosophy, Durham University) and Dr Christabel Owens (University of Exeter Medical School).
The event is intended for anyone with a professional or personal interest in suicide prevention, including:
- Front line health and emergency service staff
- Third sector employees and volunteers
- Policy makers and health care management
- Members of the public involved in or who would like to be involved in suicide prevention
The registration fee is £70 (£30 concessionary if you are self-funded or work for a charity), and includes lunch and refreshments. The event is open to everyone and the fee can be waived for those who would otherwise be unable to attend.
