  2. 07:00 - 10:00 Weekend Breakfast with Ryan O’Connor

Today is International Suicide Prevention Day and although suicide, along with depression, anxiety and other mental related illnesses are coming to the fore, unfortunately it still claims lives everyday.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), one person dies every 40 seconds from suicide globally. This could be prevented if countries could establish national suicide prevention strategies, which the world health body and other mental health advocacy groups have been calling for.

Singer and winner of The Voice Season 2, Craig Lucas shared his battle with depression, anxiety and even suicide with Carl Wastie on The Flash Drive.

"I was around people all the time, but I was really alone..."
