SP-OT'ed Suicide Prevention, a talk by the charity PAPYRUS (Prevention of Young Suicide)

SP-OT'ed, a talk on suicide prevention is a session run by the charity PAPYRUS (Prevention of Young Suicide). It will be held on 19th February from 6pm until 7:30pm. Tickets are £3 for members and £4 for non-members, with £2 from each ticket going to PAPYRUS to help with their ongoing work. The event will be held on Zoom or Teams, however there are a maximum of 30 places available due to constraints set by PAPYRUS, so tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The link to the event will be provided closer to the date. 

The talk's key objectives are:

  • To understand the prevalence and impact of suicide
  • To explore the language, and the challenges, when talking openly about suicide
  • To recognise the ‘signs’ that may indicate someone is having thoughts of suicide
  • To consider how we can all contribute to a suicide safer community.

  • Participants must advise the wellbeing/safeguarding representatives (Parasoc representative is Jemma Westwood) if they need to leave the session either through the chat function or via direct messaging
