Q Radio has been told Northern Ireland desperately needs a Suicide Prevention Strategy.
Foyle MLA, Mark H Durkan says there is one, but it's "gathering dust" as there is no powersharing executive at Stormont to implement it.
He's been speaking to us after his sister, Gay took her own life 7 years ago.
The SDLP representative says: "Many many families across Derry and beyond have been and are being affected by suicide".
He added that, "families shouldn't have to suffer like this and we have to do everything to make sure that they don't".
On this #worldsuicidepreventionday @SDLPlive MLA @MarkHDurkan , who lost his younger sister Gay to suicide seven years ago, says that it is ‘shameful’ that the strategy for suicide prevention in NI is ‘gathering dust on an empty minister’s desk in #Stormont’ pic.twitter.com/TtBoUgUiJz— Leona O'Neill (@LeonaONeill1) September 10, 2018
