26/10/2020

Talking to people with lived experience of suicide is vital to how we learn, and ultimately prevent deaths in the future. We spoke to Stephanie about her story, and in this video she told us how talking has helped her & how breaking the stigma can help others.

She goes on to tell us what we as a nation can do to help those who need it the most, before giving some advice of her own to people who are struggling.

Join our movement, and join Stephanie, in making this the most supportive country in the world

How I lost the head – and found myself

01/10/2020

I can remember the night vividly. I was playing football with a few of my friends at the local pitches. The rage that hit me as we were knocked out of the tournament was like never before. I can remember being so angry that I kicked the bags next to the goals containing our stuff, smashing a friend’s phone screen in the process. The rest of the boys were laughing as I was going ballistic and this was all over a game of football – I regret it to this day but looking back it was just what I’d needed.

I knew at this point that there was something wrong with me. For the rest of evening, I said nothing apart from apologising to my friend about his screen and offering to pay for a new one. I had never wanted to cry so much in my life but I held it together as I didn’t want to totally embarrass myself in front of my friends.
