Speaking the Unspeakable An Intervention Journal webinar on suicide prevention and response

Join Intervention for a webinar on suicide prevention and response. Using the articles recently published in the special section on suicide prevention and response in the September issue as a starting point, the webinar aims to provide a space for dialogue, sharing
experiences and mutual learning.


Together with panelists and attendees, we hope to encourage those present in trusting that action is possible in this very challenging aspect of MHPSS.

Four authors will open a dialogue together on this topic. The webinar also features a special message from Dr Lakshmi Vijayakumar, a psychiatrist with extensive knowledge and experience in suicide prevention and response.

Four authors with articles in the Intervention special section on suicide prevention and response will make up the panel:
