In Australia 3 million Australians are living with anxiety or depression. Each day in Australia 6 men take their lives. However 82 men call an ambulance due to suicidal thoughts or attempts.(Beyondblue.org.au)
This episode of Sew Organised Style we listen to one man’s journey to open communication about those people who have taken their lives through the people who are left behind. In two days, Michael Grey Griffith wrote Marooned, a new play in memory of a friend he lost. Developing Marooned has been a journey in itself for Michael.
At Kaikey’s Lane cafe on Saturday morning in Melbourne Michael spoke to us about Marooned. The background cafe noise is real and not recorded.
Warning: We discuss suicide prevention. Go to our resources page to find reputable organisations for help when you need it.
