Comedy and Suicide Prevention

For over 30 years Kenny struggled to find a way to ease his depression. But after seeing an advert for a therapeutic comedy course, Kenny’s life changed forever. In this episode, we’re thrilled to chat to Kenny about discovering his new passion and to Angie Belcher, a professional stand-up comedian and facilitator of Comedy on Referral. The course was co-designed with men who have attempted to take their own lives or had lost someone to suicide, and uses comedy to help people move through trauma. 

Thanks to North West London Integrated Care Board for funding the Comedy on Referral and our partners Central North West London Recovery & Wellbeing College, NHS London Trust, The Recovery College and NHS Central London, North West London NHS Foundation Trust  and The Comedy Store.
