Guests: Jane and Gab

In this episode, we hear the stories of two people whose loved ones have died by suicide.

It’s heavy stuff, involving big emotions. As presenter Leon Fernandes says in the interview, “There are places where words can’t reach and that darkness [of suicide] is absolutely one of them.”

Jane talks about the loss of husband Jez, and how she continues to struggle to make sense of his suicide, with gutsy honesty and deep compassion.

Gab’s experience happened at just 14 when her beloved brother took his life. Many years later, Gab would lose a second family member to suicide when her father chose to end his life.
