On a journey with Professor Green

Last night on BBC 3, Professor Green openly talked about his Dad’s suicide and the sad fact that most people that commit suicide in the UK are middle-aged men.

He identified part of the problem is the stigma attached to having suicidal thoughts. Also that men of a particular generation clam up their feelings rather than addressing them.

It’s an important issue that needs to be addressed to stop people ending their lives as a result of psychological entrapment – feeling there is no other way to address problems.

This interesting blog post talks about case studies of people in America who came close to death through suicide attempts. It gives an excellent insight into why they took such a tragic decision, yet escaped with their life.

This blog is for UNICEF.

Thanks for reading.
