Event description

Description

We will be bringing together experts from across BU and the local Dorset community to discuss a joined up approach to suicide prevention and the impact that media can have on the topic..

During the afternoon we will hear from external partners including the Dorset Suicide Prevention Partnership Group and the Samaritans along with contributions from BU staff. There will also be an opportunity to put questions to all of our speakers during a panel discussion.

Perhaps you have questions around support networks, volunteering or you just want to find out a little more about the services available to staff and students here at BU. Whatever your interest please do join us to find out more.
