Incredible mum Vikie Shanks and daughter Kacie on their family tragedy featured in Netflix documentary Kingdom of Us
VIKIE SHANKS AND DAUGHTER KACIE TALK ABOUT
In an incredibly moving interview, Christine, Linda, Janet and Saira were joined by Vikie a mum-of-seven from Kenilworth, Warkwickshire and her daughter Kacie.
Vikie's husband Paul took his own life in 2007 after experiencing years of depression leaving behind Vikie and their seven kids - six of whom are autistic.
The family have been filmed for three years for a new documentary, Kingdom of Us, on Netflix which follows their struggle in the wake of Paul’s death.
Speaking of why they decided to make the documentary, Vikie said, 'Making the film was very cathartic. It was a way of owning our story and doing something with it that would potentially help other people. Even if people just start talking about these things, that would be a triumph. And if it helps them, even better.'
Kingdom of Us is available to watch on Netflix from October 13.
Watch the video to see the inspirational interview with Vikie and Kacie about their decision to speak out about mental health and make the documentary.
