Public Lecture: Understanding suicide in NI: applying psychology to save lives

Psychology - stress

Public lecture by Siobhan O'Neill, Professor of Mental Health Sciences

As part of the Civic Lecture series, Siobhan O'Neill, Professor of Mental Health Sciences will discuss the research on suicide in Northern Ireland, and the evidence for the links between today’s suicide rates and our troubled history.

The pathways of transgenerational transmission of trauma, and the impact on future generations, not directly exposed to the violence of the Troubles will also be considered.

In addition, Siobhan will consider how psychological techniques may be applied to reduce suicidal behaviour in individuals who are receiving psychological care, and in a population who continue to suffer from the legacy of trauma.

This event is supported by The School of Psychology and The Institute for Mental Health Sciences at Ulster University.

The event takes place in Lecture Theatre MD108 and is open to everyone.
