Episode 18

Suicide: Spotting the signs, grieving, and raising awareness.

If you are a football fan and you use Twitter, you'll know Jonny Sharples for his incredibly humorous tweets, highlighting the lighter side of the beautiful game. What you might not know, is that in 2014, Jonny's older brother Simon, died by suicide.

In this interview, we ask Jonny about how he acquired his twitter fame, the difficulties he faced when his brother died, and what he is doing now, as a CALM ambassador, to raise awareness of male suicide prevention.

This is the final episode of series six, and it's a really special one for us. Jonny epitomises everything we're striving to be at Man Marking. Give it a listen, you'll laugh, you'll cry and hopefully you'll learn.
