Jordan’s Space on Yowah Radio
Show 4. ‘Suicide through a child’s eyes’ with Police Sergeant Elaine Malcolm
On February 13th 1995, at just 12 years old, Elaine awoke, instinctively knowing something was wrong – later that day, Elaine’s father would leave a note with a couple close to where, just a short time later, he would end his own life.
This episode of Jordan’s Space speaks with Elaine as she talks, for the first time publicly, about her father’s suicide and the stigma her family experienced following his death.
We will also discuss what can be done to better safeguard and support children and young people who are struggling with their mental health and we’ll get an insight into how things are changing within the police force to provide better mental health support to officers and the general public.
