Suicide Prevention Conference 2019

Friday 11th October 2019 at Bet 365 Stadium, Stoke

This is the 2nd annual Together We’re Better Suicide Prevention Conference.

The day offers a unique opportunity to hear from a number of experts on topics such as Care of the Bereaved by Suicide, Young Peoples Mental Health and exciting updates about funding for Suicide Prevention across Stoke On Trent and Staffordshire.

The challenge for everyone working in public facing organisations will continue to be how do we work better together to prevent suicide?

The conference aims to enable partner agencies to reflect on what they can do to help, better identify those at risk and hear about new innovations from our region and across the UK.
