Welcome to the online home of netECR. We are an independent, international network of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) working in suicide and self-harm – netECR! Through netECR, we aim to facilitate collaborations, networking, and mutual support for ECRs in the field of suicide and self-harm research.

On this website we provide information for all our activities and a space for ECRs to publish blogs on different topics such as academia, suicide prevention, research, careers advice, lived experience, and events. You can find out more by visiting the ‘About us’ page.

netECR membership is free (yay!) and is open to all ECRs engaged in and/or contributing to suicide and self-harm research. If you want to find out more about becoming part of netECR, please email us at internationalnetecr@gmail.com.

Feel free to explore the whole website. We hope you enjoy your visit!

Sharing ideas and knowledge with my fellow suicide and self-harm ECRs helps me to improve my research, and its potential impact.

Being part of such a supportive and inspiring network has enhanced both my PhD experience as well as my development as a researcher within the field of suicide and self-harm research.
