On World Suicide Prevention day, there are calls for more action and public discussion about the unsettling fact that Northern Ireland has the highest suicide rate of any part of the UK.

A young man from Cookstown, James Connolly, has enlisted the help of Fixers - the campaign that gives young people a voice, to raise awareness.

They have produced a powerful and thought-provoking film which draws attention to the scale of the problem.
