In 2016, law firm Linklaters held two seminars for employees on the topic of suicide. The first seminar was held in October and featured Michael Mansfield QC and Yvette Greenway, founders of Silence of Suicide (SOS). The couple set up the organisation following the deaths by suicide of Mansfield’s daughter and a friend of Greenway’s, with the aim of breaking down the stigma around suicide and enabling people to talk openly talk about it. Jenny Lloyd, diversity and wellbeing advisor at Linklaters, says: “The focus of that session was really to start the conversation on suicide. They reminded us that it is still quite a taboo subject and it’s not one that a lot of people are touching on.”https://www.employeebenefits.co.uk/issues/may-2017/linklaters-raises-awareness-of-suicide-through-workplace-seminars/
