Expert Insights

From October 2011 until April 2014 LIFE Communications held a number of Expert Insights question and answer sessions, giving professionals working in the suicide prevention sector access to the leaders of their field.

Collecting questions around a particular topic, LIFE Communications then passed them on to an elected expert for consideration. The expert responses were then published here on the LIFE website.
