- If you are considering blogging, writing, or reporting on this, please read The Samaritans media guidelines for how to approach the subject appropriately and sensitively.
- Please consider others who may be struggling with similar issues and include a trigger warning for suicide before your writing. My advice as to how to do this is here.
- If you are experiencing suicidal ideation yourself, I have compiled a list of useful hotlines, contacts and information here, and there is a Mind help page on how to cope with suicidal feelings here.
Never underestimate the immense power of silence: If you are struggling with your mental health and wellbeing, speak out. There are so many people out there who can and want to help you.
Look after each other.
