Sharon Mcdonnell

Honorary Research Fellow, University of Manchester

I have conducted suicide bereavement research for twenty years and recognised as an international expert in this field. I specialise in qualitative research methods and translate research findings into evidence-based suicide bereavement training. My work has been referred to in several parliamentary debates and used as evidence in NICE guidelines. I led the development of PABBS evidence-based suicide bereavement training, which is first of its kind internationally. I am currently leading the largest suicide bereavement survey internationally, which is a collaboration between the University of Manchester and Support After Suicide Partnership.
