“Inclusion and Missing Pieces in the Suicide Prevention Puzzle” – the York Event for the #ZeroSuicideSociety #JoinTheDots Tour 

The #ZeroSuicideSociety #JoinTheDots Humber-to-Mersey Tour, is dedicated to practical actions via ‘collaboration & co-ordination not competition’ to get the UK suicide numbers on a downward trend, towards zero.  This would be a transformational change challenge as the long-term downward trend halted in 2007; we had 15 years of ‘flat-line’ at 6,000+ preventable deaths by suicide each year (that’s 100,000+ preventable deaths by suicide since 2007!); and the numbers in England have just gone up by 6% 2022-2023:

Our Tour is in York on Thursday 13 June with a panel discussion event from 12-2pm at the City Screen. (access includes hearing loop; step free access; wheelchair accessible toilets)

It’s a stunning panel line-up that you read about at the link below – and book tickets:

We also have a couple of very special Special Guests – Bob & Maggie Abrahart.. Since the death by suicide of their 20-yr old university undergraduate daughter Natasha, Bob & Maggie have been battling for justice & safer universities for students who struggle, and recently won their case v the University of Bristol, with the High Court confirming the Bristol Coroner’s judgement that the University of Bristol had fundamentally contributed to the death by suicide of Natasha Abrahart.

When I met Bob & Maggie and started working with them, I discovered that since Natasha’s Inquest in May 2019, Bob has written a letter to the Higher Education Minister…every Friday!

He’s been through 3 Ministers now, and new Ministers get a special briefing on ‘Bob Abrahart’!

Please get a ticket and come and join us.

And please spread the word through your networks.

There is a capacity of 80 in the City Screen.
