The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) recently announced the following interesting event being held online on the 6th May 9.30am to 12pm.
Suicide in children and young people: Everyone’s concern
The topic of suicide has been identified as a high priority area, particularly in the context of Covid and lockdown, and subject we should all be concerned with. We need to identify those that need help early, and give them the support they need, and provide their support networks with the tools they need to assist. Additionally, we need to be helping families, friends, teachers, and these support networks work through the trauma in the aftermath of a suicide.
This practically focused online conference, organised by ACAMH Scottish Branch, will have talks from clinicians, education professionals, leading agency and charity professionals, and Public Health Scotland. Join us for the latest evidence-based research, and learn how you and your colleagues can better support those in need.
