    I’m making a documentary

    by Sunny on 16th December, 2008 at 12:58 am    

    As Matt Seaton points out, I’m making one of the four initial audio podcast documentaries for Comment is Free/Guardian. It will be about the high instance of suicide rates among British Asian women.

    It will be released on January 5th.

      yeh…southall station should be renamed…suicide central…
      You should interview GPs in the area..it’s interesting to say the least…the mother in law comes up a lot.

      I come across a lot of asian womens groups in my work and without fail every time, i’ve had them ask me about how to cope with stress…the inlaws and shitty husbands

      find a way of wafting it towards the potential tyrants of these action scenarios.

      am glad this is being covered.

      Ref point raised by Sofia @3 Will you also be covering the level of depressions, stress related conditions etc too as these are inter-related & of a higher level as not all women take the recourse of suicide but are in a living death? Am saying this as it would show the real magnitude of the issue.

      why dont locals at southall look out for them? why doesnt the train company go all jubilee line on train track access?

    7. persephone — on 16th December, 2008 at 11:04 am  

      Fugstar “why dont locals at southall look out for them?”

      Do you mean prevent them when they jump or generally within community life?

      Great topic, I look forward to this.

      Nice one Sunny, for flagging this up. And good luck with it - I have no doubt that it’s going to prove somewhat harrowing as you go further in.

      I’ll be looking out for this come early January.

      I’m looking out for it, sounds good.
