This webinar is for anyone working in primary care, as well as services working frequently with primary care. It is an opportunity to discuss research and practice in suicide prevention with leading experts.

Primary care plays a key role in identifying and supporting those at risk of suicide and self-harm, not least through primary care’s connections with community, family, secondary care and other services.

The webinar will:

  • Set the context through discussion of key research and the history of suicide prevention
    in primary care.
  • Review the current situation in primary care; what works well, what can work better and
    what opportunities are provided by new frameworks.
  • Provide a focus on young people and self-harm.
