- 08:30 - 16:25
- The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Lee is an Inspector with Hampshire Constabulary with 30 years of operational experience, including responding to critical incidents, youth offending and police custody management. He has broad experience of responding to people suffering with mental health conditions who are at a point of crisis in their life.
Lee’s family has been personally affected by the devastating effect of suicide, when in September 2018 his eldest son, Daniel ended his own life just after starting University.
“Daniel’s death was an immense shock and tragedy that has forever changed us as a family. The trauma of suicide is life changing and will never really leave us but we hope that by contributing to the debate and working with Universities more can be done to identify, support and respond to students with Mental Health problems and provide a better response during crisis points for students in the future”
