Dr Hirini’s fellowship will be supporting the third phase of the LOSST: LIFFE project in Leicester, concerning suicide response and prevention, from a New Zealand perspective. The current phase of the project recognises the impact of suicide on frontline professionals and involves interviewing a wide range of professionals, and key community representatives including police, counsellors and teachers, to gather more information about what this impact might be. Dr Hirini is hosted by Dr Michelle O’Reilly (School of Media, Communication and Sociology & Neuroscience, Psychology and behaviour).
