SRA Cymru/MRS free evening seminar - Understanding suicide prevention on the railways

SRA Cymru and MRS jointly bring Future Agenda’s ground-breaking and award-winning anthropological and ethnographic research for Network Rail to Cardiff.

Every 36 hours someone will choose to end their life on Britain’s railways, and numbers are rising. There is a growing fear that current thinking and prevention methods may only go so far. It is in this context that Network Rail commissioned Future Agenda to explore the phenomenon of rail suicide ‘hotspots’, and whether there may be identifiable connections between the communities that surround them and the suicides that take place.

*The seminar is free but you’ll still need to book your place.*
