Helping Men in Suicidal Crisis: A Free Clinical Discussion
Over 6,000 people die by suicide in the UK each year, and three quarters of these are men. Suicide is still the single leading cause of death of men under 50.
At a UK-based charity, James’ Place, we want to make sure that help is available for every man facing a suicidal crisis and support them to find hope for the future. Our mission is to stop men dying by suicide. We believe death by suicide is preventable.
DATE: Thursday, 8th of July
TIME: 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm BST, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CEST, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
James’ Place works with health partners to deliver a service to men whose needs have not been met by traditional services. For this event, James’ Place and Stillpoint Spaces have partnered to offer a free clinical discussion on how to best distinguish between men with suicidal ideation, suicidal intent and those close to acting on thoughts and plans as well as how to respond. While our presentation will be about the best practice in the UK, we are curious to hear more about practices in other countries.
The free discussion is designed for qualified psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, and students of those professions motivated to work with men in suicidal crisis.
