High school student Chloe is shocked to discover her best friend has taken his own life. She finds herself and those around her, struggling to cope with the complex, confusing emotions of grief and loss. The tragedy brings to the surface her own dark troubling thoughts causing her to withdraw as her life seems to slowly unravel. However, with support and understanding, there's a way through these dark days. Intended to open up debate and discussion around this difficult, highly emotive and confronting subject, the drama explores: what can lead to suicidal thoughts; the warning signs; how to support someone thinking about suicide; dealing with depression and coping with tragedy when someone close takes their own life. Commentary by mental health experts is interspersed at key points in the drama to further explore the complex emotional and psychological themes covered. It provides talking points to support class discussions. An essential resource for teachers wanting to raise awareness about this difficult topic and encourage student discussions around mental health and emotional well being.
