Understanding Suicide: Opening up the Conversation

Wednesday, 03 April 2024
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (UK time)
    • Claire Russell, CEO & Founder, Mental Health in Business

Suicide affects us all, directly or indirectly, and it is important that we normalise conversations about suicide.

This empowering session explores the complexity of suicide and breaks down some of the stigma that surrounds it.

The aim of the session is to instil a message of hope – hope for recovery for those that are experiencing thoughts and feelings of suicide and hope that we can all play a part in creating suicide safer communities.

Our speaker Claire, has over 20 years business ownership and corporate leadership experience, having established, run, sold and managed several businesses in the financial services sector. She is a prolific speaker and has presented on a wide range of topics from business leadership and strategy to more personal inspirational and motivational talks drawing on her own life experience.

Claire's focus is now on mental health in the workplace and in business. She has considerable experience working, volunteering and advising in this area as well as her own very personal experience. She is a certified mental health first aider, accredited mental health first aid trainer and a committed volunteer and trainer with the charitable organisation Samaritans. There are many people talking about mental health but very few that have the combined experience that Claire has - which she is determined to use to effect real change.
