Our CEO to speak at Conference for World Suicide Prevention Day this Thursday

This Thursday marks World Suicide Prevention Day. To mark this event, our CEO Caroline will be presenting at the National Suicide Prevention and Intervention Network at Aylesbury about the work of the Tomorrow Project.

Standing alongside our academic colleagues, Caroline will be describing the valuable work that the Tomorrow Project has delivered and the lessons learned from this particular piece of work to a broad National audience.

The Tomorrow Project was born out of the needs of a specific small community and it’s experience of a suicide cluster; the work has then been broadened, taking the lessons learned from this difficult work, and developing and refining a three tier model of help and support to people at risk of suicide in a manner that places individual need and care at the heart of this work.

To be asked to represent at this level is an honour and a privilege and serves to demonstrate the significance of the work that we are doing in the world of suicide prevention. However, this also comes at a very difficult time. Our work saves lives, but we no longer have the vital funds that we need to deliver this work.

If you would like to see The Tomorrow Project continue, please help us to raise awareness of the project and if you would like to fund raise for us, we would really welcome your efforts and support.
