SOS Silence of Suicide, kindly sponsored by Crowne Plaza Stratford and hosted by founders Michael Mansfield QC & Yvette Greenway, visits Stratford Upon Avon, Warwickshire for the first time in November.
This is a free event and we recommend you attend if you've been affected by suicide in any way. Seat reservations are recommended, but you can also turn up on the night if you prefer.
Whilst everyone is encouraged to speak and share their stories, it is equally important that we all take time to listen to each other. For example, how do we adequately support those bereaved by suicide, not just immediately, but on a long term basis? Are there any indicators that someone is about to take their own life? If you have thoughts on this, come and share them. Your experiences, your needs matter. Let's get talking.
Our initiatives give everyone the chance to contribute in whatever way they feel comfortable with - for 2 hours, you can discuss suicide without fear of judgement or ridicule in the company of others who've also lived your experience.
You'll also get the opportunity to watch our SOS Silence of Suicide Film, featuring input from Ruby Wax and Clarke Carlisle.
The Crowne Plaze has superb facilities and is located within walking distance of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. We are thrilled that they are sponsoring our event and excited about exploring further SOS opportunities with them going forward.
Refreshments and parking will be available.
