The 30th World Congress of the International Association for Suicide Prevention broke all records when it was held in Derry from 17-21 September. Over 850 delegates from 57 countries attend the congress which was a record for the IASP, beating the previous best in Montreal 2015. Another key achievement for the event was that it was also the largest congress ever to be held in the city of Derry.
The glorious sunshine all week allowed delegates to experience this wonderful city and the event had a huge impact on the city. Feedback from all attendees has been amazing. Our team, lead by Project Manager Louisa Fraederich were delighted to partner with Ulster University, PHA, Visit Derry and University of Glasgow on this truly special event. We cannot wait to work in Derry again!
