'I didn't come on this show to talk about suicide'

Real-life experiences of mental health and male suicide in Scotland are shared by the audience in a moving discussion on BBC Debate Night.

One audience member told how he was "lucky" to have NHS support after he tried to take his own life.

Another, a bereaved father, said GPs should automatically be asking people if they are “feeling suicidal”.

Another man, who as a child coped with his father’s dementia diagnosis, has called for more mental health support for young people in Scotland.
