Suicide and suicidal thoughts

One conversation can save a life

I kept my mental health issues secret from everyone I knew for ten months. It was a mental problem, but I could feel the weight of that problem physically weighing me down every single day.

Contemplating suicide, alone, as a 20-year old who was meant to be out enjoying the “best years of his life”, was an incredibly difficult thing to have to wake up to and think about everyday.

We need to talk about male suicide

The theme for this International Men's Day is tackling the biggest killer of men under 50 in the UK. Together, we need change the way we think and act about suicide, so that men feel able to reach out, and so that they are supported when they do. Today, read Davy's story about his experiences with depression, suicidal thoughts, and talking about his mental health.
