Surviving Suicide and Igniting the Mental Health Conversation with Matt Caruana

Season 2, Episode 15,   Nov 16, 2022, 11:00 PM

Before I introduce this episode’s guest it’s important to warn you that today we are sharing the story of one man’s battle with suicide and some may find this subject sensitive and stressful. If you are struggling with mental health issues, or with any topic related to today’s episode please contact the relevant support numbers in your country and reach out to those around you for help.

At the age of 16 years old Matthew’s life seemed to be going exactly as he wanted it - he was building an incredible physique at the gym, he was disciplined to achieve success and had his whole life ahead of him.

The day after Matthew posted a picture of himself on social media, in the best shape of his life, he jumped off a roof and attempted to take his own life. Whilst this was a failed suicide attempt Mat sustained life changing injuries - a complete spinal cord injury and a brain injury - and was confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

Despite these injuries Matt knew that he had been given a second chance at life and he has committed himself to raising awareness about the importance of looking after mental health. Matt goes into schools and corporations to share his stories, his strategies and to open up important conversations that are helping so many. 

We are so honoured to have Matt join us on Inspo where he will provide advice, knowledge and insight on all topics relating to mental health.
