Stuart Rayner smiles and hugs his daughter Lucy

Lucy: Breaking the Silence, the full interview

A documentary about a young woman from Reigate who took her own life has been shown at a private screening funded by the charity set up in her name. The Lucy Rayner Foundation was set up by her family to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of depression in young adults, and to keep the memory of Lucy Rayner alive.

In an emotional interview our presenter Annie Whitmore spoke to Lucy’s father Stuart about The Lucy Rayner Foundation and the documentary Lucy: Breaking the Silence. The short film is about Lucy Rayner’s life and the work of the foundation. It will be used as an educational tool to be shown in schools, colleges and universities to help young people talk about their feelings and how being open about their emotions can change as well as save lives. It provides information to help people recognise the symptoms of anxiety, depression and low self esteem in themselves or those around them and where they can go to get help.
