Suicide prevention film aired

Mental health
A short film made to raise awareness of mental health in young people and prevent suicide will be shown in all Glasgow secondary schools.

Bridge Curricular, a resource developed at St Andrew’s Secondary by a member of the drama department, involves three 40-minute activities based around Bridge, which was originally released at the Glasgow Film Theatre in 2018.

The materials have been trialled and evaluated by 20 pupils from S5 and S6 and will be made available to everyone in those years across the city from this month, supporting existing suicide prevention work in schools.

Bridge, which was shot at Kelvin Bridge in the west of the city, was made by independent production company StoneScissorsPaper.

Every Glasgow secondary school has access to counsellors via Life Link, a scheme provided through an NHS contract that runs until June.
