Join us in Aberdeen for an interactive study day, which brings together those who support bereaved men and boys to share their knowledge, challenges and expertise. There will be input from Sean Humphreys from Child Bereavement UK, giving an insight into how men grieve and why we might need to challenge our common misconceptions in order to offer the best possible support. 

We will be joined by various speakers, sharing their experiences, including Laurie Dunsire, a bereaved parent and Ben Kane, a bereaved sibling. Graeme Young from PAPYRUS will share their work around suicide prevention and Shaan Malhotra, a Child Bereavement UK facilitator, will discuss processing childhood bereavement in adulthood. Further details and an agenda will follow.

25 April 2024: 10am to 4pm


The study day will take place, in person, at  Leonard Hotel and Conference Venue, Argyll Road, Aberdeen AB21 0AF.

Registration will be open from 9.15am and the welcome address from 10am. We aim to finish by 4pm.
