  • AEM Podcast #20 Chukumeka "Chukes" Maxwell - Suicide Awareness & Prevention - What Can You Do For Yourself & Other To Help Prevent Suicide?

    Today on my An Evolving Man Podcast I speak with Chukumeka "Chukes" Maxwell about suicide awareness and prevention.

    We explore what you can do if you are feeling suicidal and we also go into some depth what you can do if someone you know or love is showing suicidal tendencies.


    Chukes is the founder of Action To Prevent Suicide CIC - a Devon based non-profit dedicated to raising funds for community-based programs focused on suicide prevention.

    Born in London, to African and Caribbean parents, Chuke’s family emigrated back to Nigeria in 1965 but Chukumeka was then evacuated to the UK in 1967 as a refugee from the Biafran civil war. He has have also lived in Jamaica and Belize. Chukes has had a very eclectic working life, from training in the hotel industry after school to opening an award-winning delicatessen and later his own catering company, then re-training as a holistic deep tissue massage therapist and later as a registered Social worker.

    A part-time lecturer at the University of Plymouth, Chukumeka is now also a suicide prevention trainer specializing in LivingWorks programs, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Trainer (ASIST) and safeTALK.


    Some of the questions Chukes answers and subjects he speaks about are:
