This session opens with a personal perspective on grief after a suicide, presented by Lucy Driver from Bristol SOBS (Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide). Lucy will share her personal experiences of suicide and its aftermath and will outline the support provided by the charity.
Lucy's presentation will be followed by a session on giving a voice to those bereaved or affected by suicide. An overview of research in this field will come from renowned suicide bereavement researcher Dr Sharon McDonnell. Her work includes developing evidence-based, theory-driven suicide bereavement training for healthcare professionals, and leading one of the largest ever surveys of people bereaved through suicide.
