Traditionally these conferences could be seen as suicide restricted through a hospital lense, or men’s suicide without men’s issues? So men’s rational suicide culture rolls on. Even so, these are worthwhile to attend. Last years conference was rather expensive, but I was able to access most of the content free by watching videos on their website, a few weeks later. MCB
