About this event

The fifth annual Suicide and Self-Harm Research North West (SSHaRE NoW) conference brings together clinicians, individuals with lived experience, academics, and researchers in the field. The conference aims to raise awareness and understanding of self-harm and suicide by presenting some of our latest research in the field, providing opportunity to hear from individuals with lived experience of self-harm and suicide, and inviting discussion of key topics via our panel. For this year the panel discussion will be “Treating and recovering from self-harm and suicide: what we know and what we need to know”.
