Panel Discussion: ‘Is Zero Suicide Achievable?’
Thu 21 November, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Shine On is a campaign all about working together to prevent suicide. Via a programme of activities, talks, events and other initiatives, we hope to bring people together to help increase understanding about the complex issue of suicide and mental health.
‘Zero Suicide’ is an aim; an aim to reduce the rate of suicide to zero. This goal has been pursued in a number of places worldwide, with work taking place across communities and organisations to collaboratively tackle suicide and deliver a reduction in suicide rates. In some places, at times, a rate of zero suicides has been successfully achieved. This panel discussion will explore the concept of zero suicide and whether we can, or should, seek to achieve this goal. Members of the panel will include people with lived experience of mental health, and mental health professionals.
Please note: this panel discussion will be chaired by a trained facilitator with their own lived experience of being bereaved by suicide. It is inevitable that there is likely to be discussion of potentially traumatic topics, including bereavement, suicide and self-harm. Please be aware of this if you are planning on attending.
