R U OK ? Suicide Prevention Film from East Belfast

We finished 2012 with a flourish by producing a short film with a group of young people from East Belfast. Their friend had recently taken his own life and they wanted something positive to come out of the experience so working with Alternatives and The SOS Group we made the short film below and launched it at City Hall in December. It plays on the key message that we all have a responsibility to look after our mates and the young people share their own experiences in frank interviews which run after the short film. We will be working with statutory bodies in 2013 to widen the audience for this film which has already had more than 2500 hits on youtube.
