So it is due to this fact that the specialist Laura Hernández Ruiz, PhD and professor in Anthropology of the Peninsular Center in Humanities and Social Sciences of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, said that Wednesday September 13 a conference was behing held to mark the 2nd Regional Suicide Prevention Day 2017. The conference was set to analyze strategies for prevention and intervention of violence in the Yucatan peninsula.

She explained that the program consisted of 7 conferences with outstanding speakers that discussed aspects of the methodologies of emotions, violence in Yucatan, anthropology and violence on suicide in Quintana Roo and Yucatan; violence and suicide conditions in Campeche; suicide mapping from journalistic notes, as a basis for social intervention, among others.

“We seek with these workshops to outline strategies for the prevention and intervention of violence to reduce the number of suicide cases in the Yucatan peninsula,” she said.
