Northbank Wellbeing Series: Mental Health – Understanding Suicide
Join us for a discussion on mental health and understanding some of the processes that underlie suicidal thoughts.
In 2018, 30 people drowned in the River Thames, accounting for 8% of drowning-related deaths nationally. Over the year, there were 688 recorded cases of people threatening to enter the Thames to take their life. 105 people actually entered the water, triggering interventions by the emergency services.
Hear from those involved directly in the field as they present to you their story and answer questions in a Q&A session. Also, we will show a short film including the story of a man who wanted to take his life but was approached by a member of the public who was able to stop this.
Thursday 30th January 12:30-14:30
RSA House, 8 John Adam Street, WC2N 6EZ
Lunch will be provided.
