Suicide Prevention – A Conference addressing Suicide Prevention. 

With guest speakers sharing their research, telling their lived experiences with their own mental health, and sharing good practice.

Including workshops by NWCH trainers and a guest trainer in the afternoon based around three key topics; Suicide Prevention in Young People, Suicide Prevention in Adults, Suicide Prevention in the LBGT+ Community.

NW Counselling Hub is passionate about suicide prevention and being able to see any warning signs early on, so we can support others to address the key concerns in clients lives. Through counselling and support at our dedicated hub in Lincoln we help many people who have suicidal ideation and/or intention. This conference is aimed at practitioners, front line workers, counsellors, therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, PSHE leads in Schools, pastoral teams in schools, clinicians, GP’s and mental health practitioners.
