TW - Suicide CW - Swearing * In this conversation I talk to Frankie Sewell, a member and supporter of Menfulness. Frankie kindly told us he was ready to share his story in the hope it might help others who are going through a tough time right now. His sage advice that 'This too shall pass' is something that runs through this conversation. We talk honestly and openly about suicide and Frankie's journey and while it's an overall positive conversation and Frankie is in a good place right now, it is heavy and so please bear this in mind before listening if there's a chance it might trigger something for you. If you're experiencing suicidal thoughts you can call the Samaritans on 116 123 to talk about this - https://www.samaritans.org/ If you're in an emergency and your wellbeing is at risk you should call 999, if you're local to North Yorkshire you can call the NHS Crisis Team on 0800 0516171. These numbers are all open 24/7. There's people out there who care and are trained to for these conversations, please reach out. Eat, Fast and Live Longer - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01lxyzc
