10th of September is World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) and many of our netECR members have come together to provide new blog posts covering a range of topics related to suicide and self-harm. The articles present a wide collection of views, experiences, and perspectives on suicide and self-harm including themes around research, lived experiences, suicide prevention policies, cultural issues, scientific practices, and public engagement. In this WSPD edition, we also have two interviews on career advice with Prof Siobhan O’Neill (Ulster University, Ireland) and Prof Thomas Joiner (Florida State University, USA) conducted by netECR members Kirsten Russell and Ryn Linthicum, respectively. We hope that these blog posts will help those involved in the field of suicide prevention to expand their views on the topic, influencing and advancing practices of prevention and intervention, and ultimately helping to save lives.
Huge thanks to all members who have contributed, in alphabetical order:
Piumee Bandara, Sadhbh Byrne, Laura del Carpio, Valerie J. Douglas, Austin J. Gallyer, Hayley Gorton, Kamelia Harris, Laura Hemming, Olivia Kirtley, Jessica Leather, Ryn Linthicum, Abigail Paterson, Mirabel Pelton, Rosie Pendrous, Elystan Roberts, Wouter van Ballegooijen
