Finally, it has been suggested that Radio Saltire presents a short series of six, weekly, two hour programmes where suicide, the resulting consequences, its prevention and where help and advice are to be found, can be discussed more comprehensively.
But it’s up to you – our listeners. If you would like to hear such a series of programmes, we would love to let us know.
You can simply email us and all you have to do is write ‘Suicide’ in the topic box and either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ below in the message space. That’s all.
Or, you can write to us (anonymously if you prefer) at:
