On World Suicide Prevention Day Alex set up a mobile studio outside Shrewsbury Abbey for a few hours to speak to some special guests about their suicide experiences . Whether they have lost a loved one, have thought about it themselves or even if they are an expert in the field of mental health.

Featured on this show which comes to you in part of our ongoing work with Shropshire Mental Health Support are, Dave who has had help addressing his demons with Shrewsbury Town Foundation, Heidi Gomm who sadly lost her brother plus Simon, who lost his brother and has been working hard to promote suicide awareness with a series of what he calls silly walks.

We also speak to representatives from Shrewsbury Abbey, including Padre Pat who talks about the community aspect of being a part of something positive where one can be taught the importance of being kind to ones self and others.

Heidi has got a fantastic idea of building a safe place in the grounds of the Abbey, where people can sit if they are feeling down and be surrounded by positive messages from others. This is a new idea that needs to gain a bit of momentum, please use this link to support this idea on Facebook:
