Symposium on internet safety and suicidal behaviour

The inaugural Connecting for Life symposium focusing on internet safety and suicidal behaviour, took place on Thursday 18 May 11am – 1pm at the Hilton hotel in Kilmainham.

The symposium heard from Dr Lucy Biddle from the University of Bristol who was lead researcher on a significant recent study exploring how people with suicidal feelings use the internet, and its impact on their suicidal behaviour. This research gathered the experiences of over 1,000 people who had used the internet for suicide-related purposes or knew someone who had used the internet when planning suicide.
