We are members of the Sheffield SoBS group. Our son Jack took his own life on November 22 because he was addicted to gambling. He was just 24. We have set up a charity called You Don’t Know Jack in order to understand more about gambling related harm, particularly suicide, and to campaign for better understanding of the effects of gambling.
We would very much like to be in contact with anyone who has been affected by suicide connected to gambling. We would like to be able to provide mutual support, to develop a greater understanding of the issues associated with this kind of suicide and to try to see what lessons there might be.
If anyone would like to contact us we can be reached on the following email or telephone number:
firstname.lastname@example.org 0114 255 4013.
