5981. That’s the number of people who died by suicide in the UK in 2012. That’s 16 people every day and the male suicide rate is approximately 3½ times higher than the female rate. Even then, the Samaritans noteofficial statistics underestimate the ‘true’ number and rate of suicide. This is not only the case in the UK and ROI but in most (if not all) countries.”

Australia’s Airscape has produced an ambient Reflections EP, of which he says “The main idea behind this EP was based around my own personal reflections on things that are currently most prominent in my mind. Aside from the piece ‘Purpose’, which I wrote for a different meaning, each track tittle has a specific meaning to myself to do with my past experiences or current thoughts/feelings. The track ‘Purpose’, however, was written and named specifically for the cause that this EP is going towards, which is suicide awareness and prevention. I believe that no matter what, no matter how useless someone is feeling, everyone always has a purpose for being here. Whether you discover it now, tomorrow, or in 5 years, you always have one. To me the song portrays this by starting out slow and then having a sudden rise during the later stages of it.”

This is free to download but why not make a donation to the Samaritans or to ASPF:
