2016 Alcohol Concern Cymru Conference | Saving lives: Understanding the links between alcohol and suicide

22 September 2016
Grand Hotel, Swansea
Join us at our 2016 conference in Swansea, where we’ll be exploring the complex relationship between alcohol consumption and suicide.
Each year in Wales, between 300 and 350 people die from suicide, about three times the number killed in road accidents.
Alcohol use is often implicated in suicides and non-fatal self-harm. A fifth of all suicides are thought to be from people dependent on alcohol, and heavier drinkers are significantly more likely to suffer depression and anxiety.
This one-day conference will encourage discussion of key questions including what exactly is the association between alcohol and suicide, who are the groups most at-risk, and how do we best offer support to family and friends after a suicide.
Conference delegates will hear from leading experts in the field, including Dr Eve Griffin from the National Suicide Research Foundation Ireland, Dr Ann John from Swansea University and Dr Roger T Webb from the Centre for Mental Health and Safety, Manchester.
