Today and tomorrow, the Harmless team are attending a two day National Suicide Bereavement Conference in Manchester, entitled ‘Suicide Bereavement: Bridging the gap between what we know and what we do.
Our CEO, Caroline, will also be delivering running a workshop on the second day of the conference. This workshops aims to provide the delegates with a community based postvention response to suicide contagion. This is entitled, ‘Going where we need to go’.
In this workshop, Caroline will take about ‘The Tomorrow Project’ which was launched by Harmless after a suicide cluster in rural Nottinghamshire. Its aim is to respond to the needs of the community and delivers a programme of support directly to the affected community and the bereaved families. Caroline will describe the model employed and the lessons learned. The workshop will consist of a short film and an opportunity for attendees to explore the complex issues that working in a bereaved community presents.
Speaking at this conference gives us the opportunity to spread awareness of The Tomorrow Project and Harmless and the work that we do, so that we can work together with others to continue saving lives.
