You’re invited to a special guest lecture featuring Rory O’Connor, author and Professor of Health Psychology at the University of Glasgow.

As part of the commitment within the university’s Mental Health Strategy we have a Suicide Safer Implementation Working Group which includes members of staff who represent the interests of both the staff and student community. The remit is to discuss and action a framework to support the implementation of a plan around suicide prevention and intervention and they have done considerable work in this area to date.

The Suicide Safer Implementation Working Group are pleased to host an interesting guest speaker around the theme of mental health at our Craiglockhart Campus on Thursday 9 February 2023 at 6.30pm.

We are delighted to have Prof Rory O’Connor deliver a guest talk entitled “When It Is Darkest: Understanding suicide risk”.

Professor O'Connor will draw from his book (“When It Is Darkest: Why People Die by Suicide and What We Can Do To Prevent It”) to allow us to get to the heart of this most tragic of human outcomes, challenging myths and misunderstandings as we navigate the theme of suicide and suicide prevention.
