Webinar screening of a new animation – shown on World Suicide Prevention Day, 10 September
Liam’s Story is a new animation created to raise awareness about suicide prevention and was released for World Suicide Prevention Day, 10 September 2020. The story of Liam’s life is told by his family and the animation was screened during a live webinar on 10 September.
Liam’s Story is a beautiful and moving animation, designed to honour Liam’s life and raise awareness of suicide prevention. The film was created by Liam’s family with support from Family Futures and was directed and animated by Tim Hawkins. The film has important messages for young people, families, friends and professionals to help keep vulnerable young people safe – “communication is a very important part of staying alive and safe until things improve, which they will.” The webinar included a panel discussion with Family Futures therapists, Papyrus’ Hopeline and Liam’s mum exploring the issues raised by Liam’s Story. It is vitally important to tell people how we truly feel and for professionals to work collaboratively and with a young person’s loved ones to keep them safe.
