Anticipating suicide - Donald Campbell
This event intends to help us to think about the difficult subject of suicidality, one we face daily in clinical work in mental health and acute care settings. The speaker, Donald Campbell, will draw on his experience in working with suicidal patients in analysis and therapy in the Portman clinic and share with us his psychoanalytic understanding and qualitative research into pre-suicide states of mind.

He recently co-authored 'Working in the Dark: Understanding the pre-suicide state of mind', with Rob Hale.
