Rachel Watters, Project Leader for Suicide Prevention, Network Rail will be talking to us about the work that she is involved with between Network Rail, The Samaritans and Train Operators to reduce the number of suicides on the Railway Infrastructure.

In the media headlines over the last few months with Mental Health Awareness week, this work is a key part of raising awareness of the issues that anyone can face in their life and how we can as an industry can help to manage incidents on the Railway.
