Can you Help?

Joe Madden Journalist require some help with an article for Cosmopolitan


Please read Joe’s request and if you can help get in touch directly with him:

My name’s Joe Madden and I’m a freelance journalist who’s currently working on a piece for Cosmopolitan magazine on depression and suicide amongst young men, and the impact on wives and girlfriends left behind when a man takes his own life. 


Cosmopolitan have asked me to write the piece because I suffered from depression in my early 20s – not to the extent that I came close to taking my own life, but enough to have an understanding of how it’d be possible to get to that point.

I’m looking to interview 3-5 women in their 20s or 30s who’ve experienced the loss of a partner through suicide, and I was hoping you’d be okay with me posting a callout for potential interviewees on the SOBS Facebook page?

As part of the piece, I’ll also be speaking to mental health professionals to get an understanding of why young men are so at risk of suicide, and what readers can do if they suspect that their partner or friend is at risk. 


If you’d like to see any of my previous work for Cosmopolitan, here’s a piece I did on the Women’s Equality Party .

Let me know what you think, and thanks for your time.
