Do you want to learn more about LGBT+ youth suicide? Are you keen to think about practical strategies for prevention? Do you want to meet others who are interested in doing similar work? Come along to our event on the 24th November 4-6pm to find out more!
This blog is written as part of the BSA Medical Sociology event MedSoc Month, which has invited attendees to think creatively both about the topics we research and about how we communicate and engage others with that research. When we saw the call for paper, as suicide and self-harm researchers we (Hazel Marzetti a post doc at the University of Edinburgh, Veronica Heney a PhD student at the University of Exeter and Amy Chandler a senior lecturer at the University of Edinburgh) were excited at the opportunity to work together and find connections between our qualitative, sociological work on suicide and self-harm, as these opportunities are few and far between within this primarily quantitative, psychologised area of research.
