Suicide Prevention Research and Impact Network (SPRIN)

Join the Suicide Prevention Research and Impact Network (SPRIN)

The Suicide Prevention Research and Impact Network (SPRIN) is a newly established network which aims to strengthen research-practice connections in the field of suicide prevention and improve the evidence-base. This network is co-chaired by Dr Karen Galway, a Mental Health Lecturer at Queen's University Belfast and Professor Siobhan O'Neill, Interim Mental Health Champion and Professor of Mental Health at Ulster University. The network has three primary aims:

  • Connection β€“to develop communication channels to link academics, policy makers, the community and voluntary sector, those with lived experiences and those in professional practice to support knowledge transfer and wider self-harm and suicide prevention efforts within a national and international context.  
  • Support β€“ to provide a central hub to highlight the latest research, training and events to support and strengthen evidence-based approaches to self-harm and suicide prevention.
  • Advocacy β€“ to create a strong voice to support evaluation and quality improvement practices, to encourage relevant and timely evidence-based policy development and implementation, and to ensure research efforts are strategically targeted and implemented effectively according to the needs of those directly affected.

We are currently seeking a broad range of stakeholders to join the Suicide Prevention Research and Impact Network. Gain access to communication channels that link academics, policy makers, the community and voluntary sector, those with lived experiences and those in professional practice to further your work in the field of self-harm and suicide prevention. Keep up to date with the latest research, news and events and help to create a strong voice to support and strengthen evidence-based research, policy development and implementation, and evaluation and quality improvement practices.
