The Silence Of Suicide
Strange title you may think ..... but it is the silence that precedes the ultimate act of those who tragically decide to end their lives.
Friday 31 July 2015 sees promotors Anna Christian Productions and Michael Mansfield QC return to The Assembly, Royal Leamington Spa when Michael, Helen Lederer and other notable speakers will lead a public awareness discussion intended to promote a better understanding of those who contemplate taking their own lives as well as the plight of those left behind. Anyone concerned with, or suffering from, mental health issues is encouraged to come and participate and use this evening as their vocal platform.
Despite its frightening prevalence in today’s society, suicide is still, in some quarters, considered taboo and retains a stigma which society must strive to eradicate, by generating understanding and eliminating ignorance.
There will be an opportunity to watch a short film, produced by Victor Lewis-Smith, Jasper Warry & Anna Christian Productions, which will include thoughts from bereaved families together with contributions from Ruby Wax, Laurie Taylor as well as Michael, whose daughter Anna, (to whom the film is dedicated), recently took her own life.
There is FREE entry to this discussion, which runs from 8pm - 10pm, but seats will be strictly limited on a first come first served basis. To reserve your seat(s), simply email your full name, together with the number of seats your require, to: [email protected].
We are supported in our awareness efforts by the charity Mind and donations to them will be actively encouraged. Part sponsorship from Mansfield Chambers.
