Life Matters

Life Matters is a ground-breaking new podcast where people with real experiences talk candidly about how suicide has affected them, where we get the very latest on innovative suicide prevention initiatives being developed around the world, investigate special projects - and hear from people who are creating some fun ways to help people to open up.

In this first programme, guest presented by academic, writer and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts, 'Life Matters' reporter Freddy Chick looks into a new app designed by a group of school girls in Brazil, the team are behind the scenes at Hollyoaks to find out how the  soap has been tackling a storyline around a middle aged man taking his own life, there's a very personal story from talented cellist Jay Emme from Birmingham, we get the latest on the Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA)  online training course and 'Life Matters' producer Ashley Byrne chats to Craig from Bolton whose created a one stop shop for men to come and get their haircut and open up to him about their most intimate feelings.
