Breaking The Silence (Mental Health Documentary) – Actual Stories


This documentary gets to the heart of suicide in Northern Ireland and examines the human debris of the family and friends left behind.

Breaking The Silence is a sensitive and effective portrait of the trauma faced by families in the aftermath of suicide, and the journey towards coming to terms with this deep, private tragedy.

Every single story builds towards its awful however inevitable conclusion and, by permitting interviewees the opportunity to talk by way of their own painful stories, the film also assists to prove that these left behind can eventually travel the extended road of healing.

The film challenges the audience to think about why such a potent stigma nonetheless surrounds suicide and mental wellness concerns, and also looks at the crucial work being carried out by the Niamh Louise Foundation – which is created up of people who have been similarly affected – to prevent further deaths by suicide.

tags The Well being Story Project (formerly CDA4CDT) is an initiative supported by a lot of members of the healthcare community (originally by Alschuler Associates, LLC, M*Modal, AHIMA, AHDI, MTIA) with the purpose to distill clinical data offered by way of dictation and narrative reports into a language that can be accepted by, shared amongst, and employed in electronic overall health records. Its mission is to attain extensive electronic clinical records that tell a patient’s full well being story.

They aptly point out on their property web page that considerably of the data necessary for patient care is locked in unstructured documents, such as transcribed notes, and they operate to unlock it by developing HL7 information requirements that help info flow between narrative documents and EHR systems. Over the earlier three years they created requirements for seven frequent kinds of clinical documents – use of which supports the new HHS rules that define “meaningful use” of EHRs.

So they get there by:
1.Producing the content requirements for the most typical document types, namely consultation reports, history and physical reports, operative notes, procedure notes, discharge summaries, and DICOM.
2.Generating and advertising a common for the exchange of structured information through HL7 CDA (Clinical Document Architecture). HL7 is the underpinning to semantic interoperability.
3.Complying with meaningful use recommendations by structuring health-related narrative.

Both the Health Story Project like HL7 facilitates the sharing and organization of well being information, but it does not get the entire job accomplished. In reality gaping holes should be discerned ahead of embracing these protocols. Our conversation of the scope and limitations of HL7 have been articulated in a prior post. Right here we will focus on problems which remain outstanding beneath the Well being Story Project when searching to ooze info out of medical documentation.

The target EMR need to initial recognize the Overall health Story Project regular. To optimize the facile transfer of content material into a structured repository that is the clearing house of meaningful use content material. The requirement of identifying and delivering meaningful, relevant content material is pushed upstream to the generators of the narrative and clinical documents. Producing content on the basic basis of preferences will be shifting more than time to meaningfulness.

The value is not in the Wellness Story Project or HL7, but on the nature of the narrative generated (and certainly not on formatting, indents or orphan lines).

The real worth is in gleaning the data constant with meaningful documentation, and the genuine cost is in missing out on the opportunities afforded by meaningful use, interoperability and liberating well being details.

Provide high top quality patient care, improve diagnosis, coding, billing and income cycle management. That the standards are espoused by the Wellness Story Project drive to meaningful documentation is merely a corollary: this is about reinventing clinical documentation.

All this possible flows by way of the hands of the transcriptionists. This is much bigger than focusing on the least expensive line. Let’s aid patients inform their story, let’s support physicians capture the essentials, let’s support process health-related documentation for meaningful usefulness.

  1. Man this is hard to watch. As someone who has suffered/suffers with Depression and Anxiety I can relate. My biggest issue is that there just isn’t enough education growing up, and I feel medical professionals and even employers dont take the time to really acknowledge how serve this is and how quickly its growing. The sad part is, GPs are given commission by large pharmaceutical companies every time they prescribe someone antidepressants, not all, but some. This means we arent really dealing with the issue, just covering it up with more drugs. More needs to happen to change the stigma and help support one and other. I am trying to use Youtube and Instagram as a way of spreading awareness. Maybe more of us should do the same! If anyone needs someone to talk to, im not a professional, but always will listen to others.

    Keep fighting and winning your mental health battles!! Peace x

  2. Lovely way to honour their loved ones, More needs to be done to understand suicide, I think it’s fabulous these families coming together & I hope they know it wasn’t their fault!

  3. I attended a funeral years ago of a young man in the 9th grade who was a friend of my neice. He had hung himself with a belt in a closet. Found by his older brother was pretty horrific. At the viewing most of the school came leaving handwritten notes and cards on the body. What kept flooding my mind was, the outpouring of love, grief, tears, flowers, notes cards, touching, handling of him lying there and no response came back from the grave. It was permanent!!!! He was a popular kid.

    This young man touched so many lives, but it didn’t appear he was aware of it in terms of feeling it within himself??? Why is that????
    Teachers, students, family, friends, parents, all in mourning over the loss and in truth could not reverse the life that was taken. Death in human form is permanent, but whatever or however we perceive it here is a promise that THE ALMIGHTY GOD, WHO IS OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, HAS PROMISED US A TIME WHERE DEATH WILL BE NO MORE, NO TEARS, NOR MENTAL ANGUISH, NO MORE TEARS ONLY JOY. THE FORMER THINGS WILL PASS AWAY. IT IS WRITTEN, AND SO IT IS. WHAT WE DO HAVE IS FAITH, HOPE, AND LOVE. AND THE GREATEST OF ALL IS LOVE. RHE ALMIGHTY GOD IS LOVE AND ANY TEMPTATION IS NOT OF GOD. BELIEVE IT. HE DOESNT CONFUSE US BUT LAYS OUT A PATTERN AND WAY OF LIFE FOR US TO FOLLOW.

    ALWAYS PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE TORMENTED AND INJURED. WHO KNOWS BUT YOUR PRAYERS MAY BE THE ONE REACHING THE THRONE IN HEAVEN TO INTERCEDE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR WAY. GOD BLESS.

  4. I know it’s the norm to view suicide as the result of "mental illness". I’m afraid I can’t see it that way. Surely, sometimes, it is. Sometimes, it is drug addiction. Sometimes, it is chronic pain and loneliness. There are so many reasons "why". All I know is that sometimes, people just do not belong here. As hard as that may be to hear or know. Some people just can not adjust to this place. They can not find their "niche". They can’t feel connected and nourished. There are so so many reasons "why". There is no one reason, but I think the bottom line is they just become too tired to wake up to another day. It’s beyond sad. I know the feeling. However strange it may sound, I feel like some people are just too beautiful and too sensitive to fit in here, to adjust to the harshness of life. For some reason, they just need to go home. No other option feels right for them, and they lose the will to fight to stay. No matter how much you love them, they just can’t do it. We have to forgive them for choosing to go to their spiritual "home". It’s not our "fault". My heart goes out to all of you who have lost a loved one and all of you who can’t find your home here. I only ask that you give it a LITTLE more time. The sun may come out. Once you are gone, it is forever, and you will be missed so much. We will not go on as before without you. It’s not possible. You really are that significant. Thank you for this video. It does my heart good to see you people who are reaching out to each other to comfort and support each other, and your focus on your loved ones’ lives rather than deaths is just beautiful.

  5. Suicide is to escape the depression, but those who commit suicide just hand over that pain and depression to dozens more. Family members, friends, etc. Doesn’t seem like much of a solution.

  6. Had to watch it twice, and still could only understand about 70%. Was a poignant documentary, but the music made it ‘sadder’.

  7. The way the bald man talks infuriates me. He keeps slurping and smacking when he speaks about his daughter’s death. The story is heartbreaking but I can’t listen to him speak without getting this weird anxiety. I don’t mean to be cruel.

  8. There is a stigma attached to mental illness which has been with us for at least 2000 years. It is totally indiscriminate and rife in society. Anyone who thinks they are not to be affected due to education, money or looks are completely deluded X x

  9. Never doubt that someone who killed themselves loved those they left behind. If anything, they loved those people so much that they killed themselves. They thought everybody would be better off without them.

  10. I truly believe that going to high school messed up my mind and contributed to my depression. If I hadn’t gone I would be a different person today – a much better version of myself. Does anyone else feel the same?

  11. ‘There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.’ – Laurell K. Hamilton. and it is VERY hard to get those wounds healing..

  12. I nearly lost my life to suicide when I was 19, not understanding much about mental illness back when I was growing up, it hit me hard, I suffered terribly, the thoughts I was getting were not right. I fought hard though, I told my mum one night about everything I was going through, she put me into a clinic to stay for over 6 months, that’s how bad I was. I never wanted to die, I just had a breakdown and terrible thoughts would always pass through my mind and go round and round to the point were I got no sleep. I was diagnosed with bipolar, multiple personality disorder and with psychotic tendencies. I’m still fighting the fight. I fight for everyday! I’m now 23. don’t be ashamed of where life puts you and what you’re faced with. please seek help.

  13. It really annoys me how everyone looks out for the rights of the patient, but no one looks out for the rights of the nurses and workers. Back in the late 90s in Portrane there was a resident who was really sweet most of the time but would snap without warning sometimes. He was 6 foot 6 and about 350 pounds so he was extremely dangerous when he got like this. The nurses had no choice but to hold him down until he calmed down. Force was the only thing that worked with him. Then one day there was a meeting and this guy came in and told them it was unacceptable for them to do this and that they should instead hold his hand and try to talk him down. That is an excellent approach for a resident who is of small build and is relatively harmless, but it of course is a bad approach for the huge resident. This shows a disgusting lack of regard for the safety and lives of the workers. You shouldn’t just say that force is never acceptable. You should instead acknowledge that sometimes it is the only thing that works. I know that this comment doesn’t cover the subject of suicide, but I had to get that off my chest because it seems like not many people think the way I do about this and I don’t understand why.

  14. Did you guys see that list of that girl’s favorite bands? Green Day, Evanescence… very telling.

  15. you know its funny but the families left behind from suicide are often left asking how they could leave us in this way but invariably thats not how you see it when your thinking suicide, you think your doing everyone the biggest possible favour, so its no that were inconsiderate but actually we think were hurting you by being alive, and when you say otherwise thats just because you have to but you cant possibly mean it.

    its almost never the case that people who commit suicide dont think about the effect this will have on other people but actually were almost universally convinced were all doing you a favour

    that may seem obviously wrong, but it really makes sense when your depressed and you cant see it any other way

  16. What is the name of the song accompanied by guitar, please, if anyone knows? Very touching and meaningful documentary…sharing on Facebook.

  17. Depression, mental illness and suicidal thoughts can become so difficult to deal with that they actually lead to true physical pain and other adverse physical problems. Here’s just a few: Anxiety, high blood pressure, panic attacks, migraine headaches, ulcers, tachycardia, obesity, alcoholism, drug abuse, drug addiction, difficulty concentrating, insomnia, anorexia, bulimia, self-harming….and the list goes on. Many people turn to cutting just to interrupt the constant flow of almost bone-crushing pressure and darkness. Depression is nothing to laugh at or to be taken lightly. It should be treated just as seriously as cancer or heart disease. God bless these families. And God bless all those who struggle daily with this formidable disease!

  18. Useless documentary. To bring awareness to suicide you have to bring awareness to what causes it, which this film seems to avoid doing. These families have no idea of why their kids killed themselves, and are clearly unable to grasp a concept of being in so lost and hopeless as to contemplate suicide. Why do you talk to them when they have no idea about it?

  19. As someone who has had severe depression and know what it feels like to want to kill yourself, please if you feel like this, don’t give up! I have been well for five years and it is possible to recover. Sometimes it takes a while to find the right drugs. Keep hanging on because your family and friends will never forgive themselves if you kill yourself, even though it isn’t their fault. You can and will recover.

  20. I haven’t watched enough yet, but when you are in the most excruciating emotional pain and not a single person will lend a hand to help and your voice gets silenced, that seems like the very last resort. This world needs compassion and empathy. Everybody is so selfish, then have the audacity to call you selfish for not wanting to live.

  21. We never used to have this on such a scale 20-30 years ago. So what’s changed that’s made this happen?

  22. am from northern Ireland , & I have a mental illness ,!  bad depressen ! , I had from high school , but I did not know why I was like this from then , I was want to kill my self , cause I was bulled a lot !! I skipped school a lot !!  was back in the late 70s,early 80s ! but its not all from high school, some is from when I was younger as a kid , sorry cant say any more

  23. God bless this family for making something good out of such a tragedy and loss….
    I have suffered all my life with depression and have found this year to be one of the hardest yet…. it is good to know SOMEONE out there gives a crap and is fighting for a VERY worthy cause

  24. Supposed to be about breaking the silence, yet they all skated around the issue when it came to explaining how they died. Why be silent about the way in which the deaths are caused yet say it’s about breaking the taboo.

  25. Ha I still get referred to as used to be because of this stupid stupid illness on the planet don’t care if others say otherwise if you’ve never experienced then never judge or talk about some one ☝️ who’s illness is not always visible .

  26. Pay attention…stop sweeping it under the rug and save your loved ones….the biggest lie I’ve ever heard was " we didn’t know they felt so badly" yes you did!!!!

  27. am I the only one not getting the accent. I wish there were proper subtitles . the auto generated ones are horrible.

  28. Our SOCIETY is so below the level of being able to stop sucide. Really, all of these people would have jumped into 4 the gear to have helped their loved ones clearly. One that doesn’t open up and talk is a silent bomb. True, there are red flags but not tale telling to the point of today may be the day.

    Our SOCIETY is not a normal pace to live in. Many people cannot face a TOMORROW that relives their torments. We are products of the outside world that is like the animal kingdom. Only the strong survive. In between are the injured who at some point crack’s and feel detached. This is not the answer, it is the symptoms.

    Man has taken the most beautiful gift of life and exchanged it for pleasure, greed, and selfserving. How can we go back to the world of safety and love for all when the earth is full of hate and loss of the LOVE OF GOD AND NEIGHBOR????

    IT’S BEEN TAKEN FROM THE EARTH AND IS PROOF MAN CANNOT RULE MAN. ONLY YESHUAS COMING WILL RELEIVE MANKIND’S GROANING. IT IS WRITTEN AND IT WILL COME. IN THE MEANTIME THERE IS HOPE AND THE LOVE OF PEOPLE THAT NEEDS MENDING THROUGH OUR WALK IN LIFE WITH YESHUAS PROMISES THAT HIS KINGDOM WILL COME AND REIN FOREVER. MAY HIS KINGDOM COME SOON IN YESHUAS JESUS NAME.

  29. +123 456 I do think its a good thing… as a last resort. I believe the person should try find help first but if they dont find what they are looking for or need, then suicide is probably the best and more compassionate option. Most so called mental health professions have no real compassion and are ignorant to the fact that some peoples lives really cant get better. Not every problem can be fixed. A terminal illness for example with chronic pain. This is why we should have Euthanasia etc.

  30. I’m angry watching because I’ve gone through this alone.  No partner.  My thoughts and prayers to you all

  31. Those who want to commit suicide do not really wanna die, they just want a different life to the one they’re living.

  32. ……I’m so glad that it is being realised that suicide cannot just be blamed on mental illness alone, there are many different reasons/factors at play, it is just too easy to say this, and way too simplified, it can be caused by environmental, social, employment, family and financial factors where someone feels they just cannot take it anymore and/or have been driven to unbelievable stress……..the devastating effect it has on loved ones left behind is truly tragic……….

  33. Mental health in the UK, or just in Lincolnshire… Get medication that turns you in to a zombie and waiting 3,5 years to get help. I am ready to walk away, let me deal with things my way. Like I have done since age 12.

  34. The sun dosent exist in northern ireland these people have vitamin d deficiency and a lack of serotonin in their brains
