CBC Wellness Campaign: How to Save a Life – a Positive Presentation on Preventing Suicide
Suicide claims the lives of almost a million people worldwide every year and the numbers are stubbornly persistent. Yet suicides can be preventable with a simple intervention. This presentation aims to challenge the myths and taboos surrounding suicide and to give you the confidence and the courage to initiate a simple conversation that could save a life.
This talk, to mark Suicide Prevention Day, will be held in-person at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, and also available to attend online. It will also be recorded for anyone wanting to watch it another time.
Please book to reserve your in-person or online place, and to be informed about the availability of the recording.
