Suicide is a global phenomenon that has come to dominate and challenge the health and public services of advanced and developing countries. The World Health Organisation (WHO) records suicide as the second leading cause of death amongst those aged 15 to 29 years old (WHO, 2014). The WHO reports that around 800, 000 people die of suicide every year, which is essentially one person every forty seconds. Suicide occurs over the lifespan and has been discovered in diverse cultures and countries.
Led by Dr Terence Nice, this course brings together contemporary thinking, research and clinical practice around suicide and self-harm. It explores the relationship between suicide and self-harm and how these inform each other. The speaker adopts a developmental perspective drawing upon his clinical experience in working with adolescents and young adults.
