Update: The Horizon: Stopping Male Suicide documentary is being broadcast again on 15th May 2019 BBC2 23.15 and on the BBC iPlayer thereafter

As part of the new Horizon: Stopping Male Suicide documentary, Dr Xand Van Tulleken travelled to Scotland (to a wet and cold Loch Lomond) to interview Rory O'Connor about why three quarters of all suicides in the UK are by men.  The programme was first broadcast on 22nd August 2018 on BBC2. Rory talks briefly about some of the work being conducted within SBRL and about the importance of asking directly whether someone is suicidal or not. It could save their life!

Xand wrote a recent article about the programme which can be found here
