Is this conference suitable for those bereaved by suicide?
This event is organised to inform and guide professionals who come into contact with those bereaved by suicide and those in a position to influence policy and practice. Therefore, it is presented in a factual manner and so is not suitable for people bereaved by suicide during the early stages and/or struggling to cope with their loss.
Please note this event is always over-subscribed, so you will need to register asap to avoid disappointment.
