Suicide: A Mass Social Phenomenon?

Guest: Martin Jára

07. 03. 18:00h

Ponrepo, Bartolomějská 11, Prague 1

Is suicide a matter of free will? Have you ever had a justified fear that someone close to you would commit suicide? When was the last time you saw a man express sadness and hopelessness?

Martin Jára, an experienced psychologist from the League of Open Men, will facilitate a public discussion on how the topic of suicide is viewed, with emphasis on the fact that 80% of all suicides in Czechia are committed by men.
