I’m alone in a hotel room ahead of a suicide prevention conference that I’m speaking at tomorrow. I’m meant to be reading through my lecture notes, but I’m not because I can’t stop thinking about a conversation I had last week.
It was a conversation about a piece of research. Doesn’t sound too memorable, right? Except, it was a conversation with a man whose research could have a transformative effect on children like mine and has implications for all of us doing as much as we can in suicide prevention.
