Belfast hosts suicide prevention conference


25/08/2005 - 11:48:44

International experts and campaigners are meeting in Belfast today to discuss ways of preventing suicide.

Around 300 people are expected to attend a special one-day conference on the issue arranged by the local British health minister, Shaun Woodward.

More than 50 people have taken their own lives in the North so far this year and the problem is particularly bad in north and west Belfast.

Representatives of some bereaved relatives are due to take part in today's conference, as are local community and voluntary groups.
