Research & Evaluation Manager Gesine Ziebarth and Board President Anne Kelly attended the 55th annual conference of the American Association of Suicidology held April 27-30 in Chicago. This conference brings together multiple sectors, such as crisis services providers, researchers, and survivors, focused on the common goal of preventing suicide and saving lives.
Gesine presented a poster on the Campus Resilience Index that she developed together with Education & Advocacy Manager Courtney Young.
Anne presented the talk “Supporting Suicide Loss Survivors through Meaning Making as a Function of Psychological Autopsy” together with loss survivors Mary Ellen Wolfe and Catherine McBennett, who started the Niamh Louise Foundation in Northern Ireland. They also managed to have some after-hours fun.
