Tallinn after Tallinn

An expert meeting on suicide and suicidal behaviour

The Slovene Association for Suicide Prevention, the Slovene Centre for Suicide Research of Andrej Marušič Institute from the University of Primorska (UP IAM), and the Psychiatric Clinic of Ljubljana organized an expert meeting on suicidal behaviour entitled “Tallinn after Tallinn”.


The meeting took place on October 21, 2014 in the classroom of the Centre for Mental Health (Zaloška 29) in Ljubljana.

We organized this meeting because we wanted to inform professionals who are interested in research and prevention of suicide of new research, prevention, and therapeutic projects that are currently implemented in Slovenia.

Slovenian suicidologists presented contributions of these projects at the 15th European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB), which took place at the end of August 2014 in Tallinn, Estonia.

The inaugural lecture started with Dr. David Kerr from the USA, hosted by the Slovene Centre for Suicide Research (UP IAM).
