Todays episode is not one of conquering demons, it is unfortunately it is a story where the demons won. I spoke with Mathew Mcswiggan about his brother Kevin, who sadly took his own life in December 2020 after battling his demons for a few years. It is difficult to find the right words and right questions without causing more pain but I think we managed to have a good conversation about Kevins troubles, how he treated them and the ways that his mind took over.
Matthew will be taking part in many challenges over the coming months to raise money for two fantastic charities namely
edwardstrust.org.uk whos focus is supporting children and families facing loss and surviving bereavement,
www.kaleidoscopeplus.org.uk who provide mental health and well being resources such as a 24hr crisis line
