About this event

Mersey Care has been a leading advocate for ‘Zero Suicide, meaning we believe that suicide is preventable.

This event led by Professor Joe Rafferty will focus on the work undertaken in HMP Liverpool relating to introducing a Zero Suicide based approach.

Professor Joe Rafferty has led at a senior level in the NHS nationally, regionally and at Trust level for over 20 years. He has been the CEO of Mersey Care for 9 years and in that time has overseen the complete modernisation of services, both for local residents of Liverpool and Sefton and also for mental health and learning disabled patients from all over the country including at Ashworth Hospital and other secure sites in Cheshire & Merseyside.

He has been an ardent campaigner for safety in mental health services. As such he founded the Zero Suicide Alliance in 2018 and was awarded Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2020 New Year’s Honours list.

At the end of this session you will have enhanced knowledge of the zero-suicide concept and a better understanding of the work currently taking place to implement a zero suicide approach.

This is just one in a series of FREE events hosted by Spectrum Community Health CIC to help mark their 10 year anniversary.
