Understanding suicide and homicide risk in family carers

Delivered online using Teams

This webinar will help social care professionals understand the risk of suicide and homicide in unpaid carers (often family members who care for adults or children who are disabled or have a long term condition). It will be a chance to hear the latest international evidence, share your own experience of supporting at-risk carers, and help shape emerging practice and policy to prevent deaths by suicide and homicide.
