Welcome back, everyone.
This is a special episode covering the tragic death of Love Island presenter Caroline Flack. On this episode, I will be reading from an in-depth article which illustrates Caroline's rise from an insecure teenager into live tv superstar and I will discuss what could have to lead her to take her own life. I'll talk to you about how you can be part of the change around mental health, what you boots on ground people can do to help stem the tide of suicide.
You can find me here. And find out how I can help your son, brother or friend or husband through difficult times and personal challenges, whether in school, love, work or life.
