Did Stephen Clements RIP commit suicide?
He had just taken over from Sean Coyle on Radio Ulster, and seemed full of life and well liked. A young family too.
I could well be wrong.... In that he took his own life.

I believe Robin Swann Unionist MLA, to be a decent spud.
I think he was visiting North Belfast today, to get an idea of the problems in psychiatric/suicide provision/prevention.
I think he has a good heart.
He will do whats right.... 👍
Odd though, he resigned as Ulster Unionist leader to spend more time with his family.
Yet.... Signs up to one of the most demanding ministerial roles (Stormont/Health), at the drop of a hat.
Strange.
I hope its not, all about the money
I think better of him..

An appalling slur, as usual.  >:D

God have mercy on his soul. RIP.
May the good Lord guide and protect his wife and children.
Amen.

"Youth group in emergency appeal over teen suicides in Northern Ireland"



"A youth group has called for a mental health emergency to be declared over what it is describing as a teenage suicide crisis."
 
"The Northern Ireland Youth Forum  https://www.niyf.org/  said the Christmas and New Year period had been "one of the worst witnessed"."

"Ahead of an emergency meeting today, its director Chris Quinn said:"...

"This has been going on for weeks; I myself have spent a number of hours in hospitals waiting with young people in need of help. My staff and I have been on the end of the phone constantly."

"I've been on top of organisations begging to get help for these young people."

"We're telling them to speak out, but then they've nowhere to turn to when waiting lists are 10-12 weeks long - it's not good enough."        etcetera,...
