*Be aware that this post includes the topic of suicide*
We are sharing this discussion she posted from August, in which she chats to another of our parishioners, Sue Mulrenan, an emergency ambulance care assistant, about the subject of suicide and what we could do if ever faced with the prospect of someone who is contemplating taking their own life. As our parish project this year is 'Grassroots', the suicide prevention charity, and following the widespread success of suicide prevention day, we are keen to promote groups and services that offer assistance with healthy wellbeing wherever we can.

Apart, yet together. #ChurchAtHome
