Suicide support group not surprised by verdict increase

Dave Higson believes action and help needed

The man behind the Bereaved Survivors of Suicide Isle of Man Facebook group says he's not surprised by the sharp rise in suicide verdicts last year.

Dave Higson lost his son Martin in 2018 and set up his support network in January 2019.

There are now 139 members.

Dave says family and friends who lose someone to suicide feel a distinct lack of official support on the Island.
