15th European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB15)
Dear colleagues and friends,
Welcome to the 15th European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB15) which will take place on August 27-30, 2014 in Tallinn, Estonia.
The ESSSB is a bi-annual event, where people acting in the field of suicide research and prevention – researchers, clinicians, volunteers – can meet, share experiences and present recent achievements in order to save lives all over the world. The ESSSB offers a high-level scientific programme with plenary lectures, parallel sessions, workshops and posters, but also social events that connect conference participants in an informal way. The slogan of the ESSSB15 – “Suicide prevention is mental health promotion” – emphasizes an integrated and hopeful approach to suicide prevention.
The ESSSB15 will be organised in a vibrant Nordic city Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Conference organiser is the Estonian-Swedish Mental Health and Suicidology Institute (ERSI, www.suicidology.ee).
Kind regards and looking forward to see you in Tallinn!
Prof Dr Airi Värnik
Prof Merike Sisask and Peeter Värnik
