19th European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour

24-27 August, 2022 - Copenhagen, Denmark

The European Symposium for Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB) is a biennial conference held in Europe. The aim of the conference is to provide a venue of knowledge exchange between researchers, clinicians, practitioners, and people with lived experiences. The 19th ESSSB conference will be held in Copenhagen on 24 – 27 August 2022.

Now more than ever…The recent pandemic has affected all parts of the world and too many lives have been lost. It has reminded us of our own vulnerability and the need to care for those who are frail and at risk. We have seen what can be achieved through global collaboration and evidence-based research. In this context, suicide prevention remains a top priority in public health and new ways of reaching out need to be explored. We hope that the conference in Copenhagen will become a venue for exchanging ideas and building hope.
