Event description

Description


Everybody Belongs Here

Join us on World Suicide Prevention Day to hear of our on-going work to make York a Suicide Safer Community. Everyone has a part to play in preventing suicide because any one of us can encounter someone at risk and be in a position to intervene, by having a conversation to keep that person safe. The most effective way to prevent suicide at a population level is through a whole community approach. This includes partnership working, training and awareness raising to improve understanding, change attitudes, reduce stigma and encourage those at risk to seek help when they need it.

This conference will include lived experience accounts from people who have had their own thoughts of suicide or who been bereaved by suicide together with presentations on recent developments and initiatives,locally and nationally,which are helping to prevent suicide and improve support for those people affected by it.

This event is for anyone with an interest in suicide prevention, personal or professional or both, including those who have had their own experiences. Whist some of the content may be hard to hear, and is perhaps not suitable for people recently bereaved or exposed to traumatic events, it is open to anyone. We believe that suicide is preventable and that there is hope that anyone's life can change for the better. We believe that we are stronger together, as a community and that "Everybody Belongs Here".
