In a new BBC documentary, Life After Suicide, Rory O'Connor talks about his research and the work conducted within the Suicidal Behaviour Research Lab to understand the complex factors that lead to suicide.   The documentary is presented by Angela Samata who lost her partner to suicide 11 years ago and she interviews many others who have been similarly bereaved and she also seeks to answer the question of why so many men, in particular, take their own lives.

The documentary will be aired on BBC1 at 10.45pm on Tuesday 17th March in England, at 11.40pm in Scotland, at 11.10pm in Wales, and at 11.15pm in Northern Ireland.

If you are affected by the issues raised, Samaritans are available 24/7 on 08457 90 90 90 (UK).  They are also available by email
