Saving Young Lives - PAPYRUS Members' Conference 2012
Come and meet other members of PAPYRUS and hear about the work of our charity
This year's conference is in the heart of Bristol, a city steeped in history. It is on Saturday 30 June 2012 - somewhat earlier than has been our traditional time of year for meeting. The venue for the conference and the dinner on the previous evening is The Grand Hotel, Bristol.
Our ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will be held at 09:30 on Saturday 30 June 2012, on the morning of the conference.
This annual event is an opportunity to find out what is happening within the charity. Also, we have the chance to see what is happening more generally in young suicide prevention which promotes the emotional health and mental wellbeing of our young people. If you have been affected by the death of a young person to suicide, or by the suicidal behaviour of a young person you know, please book your place at this event. The conference is open to all who are interested in preventing young suicide.
2012 speakers include:
Dr Sharon McDonnell from Manchester University
Sharon has worked at the Centre for Mental Health and Risk since 2000. Currently, she is the principal investigator of a study which aims to develop a parental suicide bereavement training pack for health professionals.
Cindy O'Connor from Pieta House in Ireland
Cindy is the Chief Operations Officer and Clinical Director at Pieta House which provides individual therapy for people who engage in self harm, have suicidal ideation or have attempted suicide. They also run workshops on the prevention of suicide and self-harm.
We will also hear from some young people about how they are leading on a schools project in Kent to help save young lives.
