Suicide Prevention Conference – Hosted by TV SPIN 13th Sept 2016

To coincide with International Suicide Prevention day, TVSCN and its partners are happy to be once again promoting this important time of year by hosting its annual Suicide Prevention Conference at Oxford Unipart, Cowley on Tuesday 13th September.

Through our Clinical Lead, Karen Lascelles (Oxford Health) we have organised a great set of speakers who will give a national perspective including from the one of the UK’s leading research professional in this area – Professor Keith Hawton as well as hearing from the work which the farming community have in place to prevent suicide.

There will also be an opportunity to hear on more  local prevention and postvention work in the Thames Valley in areas such as; bereavement, children and young people, use of technology and hearing from the third sector on their work in the local area.

This is always a very popular and well evaluated event – we are very fortunate to  have such an effective SPIN network across the Thames Valley and would encourage practitioners, third sector, patients, local authorities to attend to engage and learn as much as possible.
