Leah Harris - Health Care, Suicide and Hope
Dec 01, 2020

I’m delighted to say that my first guest is someone I’ve wanted an in-depth conversation with for about a year.

Leah Harris is a Paramedic for West Midlands Ambulance Service who is an avid campaigner for suicide awareness and prevention. Her passion for the latter was born from not only her experiences in her paramedic role but the tragic loss of her sister to suicide and the events that followed. 

In the first half of the conversation, I talk to her about how she copes with the ups and downs of life on the road with the ambulance service and how this can affect her home life. Then the conversation moves on to her sister, how the events of that day have affected her, the ripple effect of suicide and how out of a tragedy she plans to help others and prevent families going through what hers have.
