Suicide and Self-Harm Research North West (SSHaRE NoW) 6th Annual Conference

Impact: Health and wellbeing

Narrative

The sixth annual Suicide and Self-Harm Research North-West (SSHARE NoW) conference brings together clinicians, individuals with lived experience, researchers, and academics in the field. The conference aimed to raise awareness of, and facilitate discussion about, research taking place in the Northwest of England about self-harm and suicide. This year the theme of the conference was on crisis interventions and brief therapies for people who self-harm. The conference featured a panel made up of experts-by-experience, clinicians and researchers who will be discussing this topic, and responding to questions from the audience. For the first time this year we also invited brief presentations from current postgraduate students undertaking work in this area. Dr Peter Taylor and Dr Caroline Clements from the Division of Psychology & Mental Health led on the organisation and running of the event this year.
