Rob Goddard meets Kat Orman from BBC Radio Oxford

“Are you free on Thursday to support me at my interview this week on the Kat Orman show at BBC Radio Oxford?” was the call I received from Rob on the Monday before, never one to miss the opportunity to join in, I enthusiastically agreed.

Rob was going to be interviewed about the topic of suicide amongst men, seemingly successful ones at that.  This came about as Rob had shared his own personal story in his book ‘Suicide to Success‘. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK!

Rob agreed to share his story to “help inspire and provide hope to others that there is a life worth living and it’s within the reach of everyone”.

So, on the 8th of December we rocked up at the studios.  I was a little apprehensive as to how it would go, knowing a little bit about the media; but Kat couldn’t have been nicer or more empathetic to the topic and Rob in particular.

The next thing I know, I’m in the studio too, with a mic in front of me!  I was delighted to be able to participate. I orginally thought I would be listening to Rob, not actually part of the interview.  As Kat said, the story behind Rob’s rise to success was having people to turn to when things got tough.

The message Rob shared, is that everyone needs the support of family and friends; and those feeling like things are really dire need to reach out to those who want to be allowed to help.

If we all take a few minutes each day to reach out to those around us, and provide a strong support network, then those who maybe feel it’s not worth going on, will realise they are loved.

Rob’s book, Suicide to Success is so much more than his personal journey, it shows others that there is always hope and a kind friend wanting to help.
