Specialisms: Suicide, Depression and Mental Illness
I survived a suicide attempt in 2010, following many years living with depression, whilst all the time I kept this secret from my family.
In my talks, I recall what it was like living with depression, suicidal ideation and the deception.
Fortunately, I survived and share the impact upon my family, reactions, both good and bad and my road to recovery. Talking openly about such a taboo subject is the only way the stigma associated with suicide will be dismantled.
