The 15th European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB15) which took 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.
