Backing for bid to stop suicides

A GROUP of Andover young people have been backed by an award-winning lotteryfunded project in a campaign calling for more support services for people thinking of committing suicide.

The team of three have worked with Fixers, a charity which supports young people to campaign on any issue they want, and have created a short documentary to try and prevent further deaths.

Five people took their own lives in Andover over the course of a year, according to Hampshire Coroner figures released in September 2013 – it was more than 10 in 2012.

The Fixers film tells the stories of three men and shows how their friends and family feel extra support is needed for young people having suicidal thoughts in the town.
