Recently, I delivered this talk to over 800 people at the Hall for Cornwall in Truro. A short 3 minute talk, introducing a good friend and client, whose husband took his own life on 15th August 2013.
Rather than write about it, I thought it would be nice to share the footage with you. Watch it here
it's not a professional recording, it is taken from the audience, the audience, who were left stunned by Nel's story, which you can watch here.
The simple message was - never stop talking, never stop looking for ways to find help. If you do not want to talk, go to a website and get help privately, without having to build up the courage to vocalise your concerns.
As well as awareness, we raised over £12,000 for the charities Carrick MIND and Cornwall Search and Rescue, and you can still see the donations flooding in here
Just get through today, and see what tomorrow brings.
