In this episode we chat to the amazing Jamie Sadler, managing director of Food Nation, Harissa Kitchen and founder of the phenomenal Men’s Pie Club. This is a Purpose Made special for World Suicide Prevention Day.
Every year, organisations and communities, come together on Sept 10th to raise awareness of how we can create a world whereby fewer people die by suicide. As it is estimated that 800,000 people across the world die from suicide each year. For every death there are many more people who have planned or attempted to take their own lives. According to the World Health Organisation, it’s estimated that one person every 40 seconds dies from suicide, each with their own personal and heart-breaking story.
Each and every suicide is a tragedy, causing devastating and permanent impacts on families, friends and broader communities. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that we do more to support those in need, invest in care and provisions, openly talk about the issue in hope of reducing these tragic losses.
Suicide is a serious global health problem, and is preventable with timely, evidence-based and often low-cost interventions. One of those such interventions, is that of the Newcastle based Men’s Pie Club. A club formed as a response to the increasing need for social connections, particularly for men who are at greater risk of becoming socially isolated.
Pie Club is a welcoming place where you can come to get stuff off your chest and put something in your belly and chatting to Jamie was an absolute pleasure and we really hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did.
