*TRIGGER WARNING* We need to talk about suicide – Jonny Benjamin.

*TRIGGER WARNING* – I talk here in detail about suicidal thoughts and feelings.

This is a reading i gave recently at a service to those who have been bereaved by suicide about my personal experiences.

A number of people came up to me afterwards to say my words had helped them so i thought i would share what i said here.

We need to get rid of the shame around suicide and suicide bereavement. There’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about.
