About this event

This talk will give a short overview about the epidemiology of suicide and suicide attempts in Switzerland and what currently is being done to prevent people to commit suicide.

Furthermore, it will give a short introduction on how suicidality can evolve, how psychiatrists and psychotherapists assess suicidality and what options you have, when someone in your environment shows signs of suicidality.

Finally, one of the most effective “post-suicide attempt” treatments is being presented (ASSIP).

In the end there will be an open question and answer round where questions can also be asked anonymously.

We invite all participants to stay for an apero, kindly sponsored by AVETH, after the talk.
