Famous faces from sports and the arts including documentarian Louis Theroux, UFC star  Paddy Pimblett, TV personality Jamie Laing, actor and comedian Asim Chaudhry, actor David  Jonsson, footballer Tom Davies, TV presenter Matt Johnson and Married At First Sight’s  Thomas Hartley have joined forces to take part in a charity video for World Suicide Prevention  Day on 10th September. 

The video aims to encourage suicidal men in London and the North West to reach out for help  from male suicide charity James’ Place, which offers free, life-saving treatment to men in  suicidal crisis at centres in Liverpool and London. The charity has treated over 1,500 suicidal  men since 2018, delivering over 7,500 therapy sessions. A third centre will open later this year  in the North East. 

Ellen O’Donoghue, Chief Executive of James’ Place said: “James’ Place works to save the lives of  suicidal men. One of our biggest challenges is making sure that people know about us, so that  men in crisis can access our life-saving treatment. We are so grateful to everyone who took part  in the video to help us raise awareness for World Suicide Prevention Day and would urge any  suicidal men in the North West and London, or their concerned family or friends, to get in  touch with us.” 

Men who are in suicidal crisis in the North West or London can self-refer or be referred to  James’ Place by a professional including those working in health and community services, or by  a friend or family member. Visit www.jamesplace.org.uk for more information. 

If you or someone you know is suicidal you can access 24 hour support via the Samaritans on  116 123, text SHOUT to 85258, or seek help from your local A&E department.
