The Eastern Academic Health Science Network (Eastern AHSN) is holding a Suicide Prevention Workshop and offering 10 paid places for people to give their views and help shape future mental health care.
We want to hear from anyone affected by mental health issues to understand the gaps in current services and the real problems people face. Anyone is welcome to attend and we would particularly like representation from the following groups:
- people aged 22-45
- people who have experienced depression or suicidal thoughts or might have friends or family affected
- people who may have felt socially isolated or moved to the UK from another country.
Why are we hosting this workshop?
Eastern AHSN is looking to identify gaps in current health and care, and hear what people with lived experience would like to improve. We will be focusing on better screening for those at risk of suicide, providing better support to prevent social isolation and risk of suicide. Input from people who face or have faced these problems is important, and your contribution would be invaluable.
What’s in it for me?
You will get to share your views and influence the work going forward. You will also receive £10 per hour for your time at the workshop and travel expenses, as well as lunch and refreshments.
