Suicide Strategy

A ‘suicide strategy’ for “N of Ireland” languishes in the dustbin of 10 Downing Street, unlike strategies for Scotland, England, and Wales. The mural is produced by “Beechmount Community Youth Project”. To the right are messages to the recently deceased: “In one 2 week period 13 young men in north Belfast took their own lives”, “In one three month period 15 suicides in west Belfast occurred”. Beechmount Avenue, Belfast.
