About this Event

Key learning

  • Increased understanding of the work of the Suicide Prevention Youth Advisory Group
  • Increased understanding of the work of the Suicide Prevention Participation Network
  • Increased knowledge of opportunities for young people’s participation in policy making relating to Suicide Prevention Scotland

The participation network is aimed at practitioners in Scotland working with young people with experience of suicidality, young people who have lost someone to suicide or young people who experience poor mental health.


In 2022, Children in Scotland started its work delivering the national suicide prevention Youth Advisory Group in partnership with the University of Stirling.

In addition to the main work of the group, we are facilitating a participation network, in recognition that there will be many other children and young people who are not part of our advisory group but who have experiences and opinions that could and should inform our work.

In this seventh meeting of the network, we will continue to share the work of the group so far, including their work on training and learning.

The meeting is open to anyone who works with children and young people in the area of mental health and suicide prevention and those with an interest in policy development in this area.

Speakers and further details will be shared shortly.

You do not need to be a member of Children in Scotland to attend.

The network is intended to be a place for attendees to share learning and for us to gather further evidence and examples of good practice in work relating to suicide prevention to support our work with the Youth Advisory Group.

Becoming part of the network will not commit you to any specific pieces of work. Engagement with us and the network will be voluntary and shaped by your own interest and availability.

If you wish to find out more about the group before attending, please contact Chris Ross, [email protected], or Parisa Shirazi, [email protected].


The meeting of the group will be delivered by Chris Ross and Parisa Shirazi from Children in Scotland. Dr Lynne Gilmour from the University of Stirling will also support the delivery of the event.
