Practical Applications: 2 Steps Forward 1 Step Back How Do We Maintain Momentum in Challenging Times - Suicide Bereavement

5 May 2023


Throughout September, Harmless is hosting its fourth annual online Suicide Bereavement Conference.

To mark World Suicide Prevention Day, they will be presenting a series of live webinars examining practical applications for working in suicide bereavement. Sessions take place every Tuesday and Thursday between 10am – 11am and each will be led by an expert in the field.

This unique CPD-accredited event will take place across eight short webinars, allowing you the flexibility to join as many as you like. And if you are unable to attend any sessions, don’t worry – they will be recording the whole conference and making sessions available for viewing from October via their e-portal.

The field of suicide bereavement is a particularly specialist area. So many of us have been impacted by suicide – the tragic loss of a loved one, a colleague, someone in our community, a patient, or someone very supportive... everyone has a story to tell.

This conference is designed to help those of us working with anyone impacted by suicide. Delegates can expect to take away a range of knowledge, inspiration and skills for practical implementation in real-life situations. Learning from some of the leaders in the field, delegates will experience interactive sessions that can help to drive change.

As in previous years, the conference will be shaped around the following five strategic areas:

  • Collaborative partnership
  • Service user representation
  • Effective practice
  • Driving change
  • Overcoming stigma and discrimination

Confirmed speakers and sessions:

  • Harmless and The Tomorrow Project – Working with trauma in the suicide bereavement pathway
  • Dr Rachel Gibbions (Royal College of Psychiatrists) – The impact of patient loss by suicide upon clinicians

Feedback from  recent Self Harm & Suicide Prevention Conference:
