Dr Jo Bell and Dr Chris Westoby from The University of Hull, working in partnership with the Humber Coast and Vale Suicide Prevention Partnership, will deliver training workshops on the safe and responsible use of social media in the aftermath of a suicide.

Attendees will take away new evidence-based knowledge of:
- The uniqueness of suicide bereavement
- Harmful and protective effects of social media use in the aftermath of a suicide
- How social media use can be harnessed to manage trauma, alleviate grief and reach those who need support
This is open to all VCSE organisations.
