Tonight, we will send off the month of Capril by discussing how people live with depression, how people can die from depression and how we might all just go beyond the catchy taglines and actually take this illness seriously.

Our guests are Alisson and Peter Marsland, parents of the late, Richard Marsland, who took his own life in 2008 after a heightening struggle with depression.

We also have Tom Williams, advertising and social media expert, entrusting us with his personal story of discovering and dealing with mental illness.

Capril is an annual event to raise awareness of depression and other mental illness.

In many ways, it is a perpetual memorial to Richard Marsland, a South Australian-born radio and television personality, comedian and script writer, who took his own life in 2008 after a long struggle with depression.

Local Capril coordinator, John Murch, whose voice you heard at the start of this episode, has recently interviewed Richard’s parents for Radio Adelaide and you can hear that full interview via a link on this episode’s show notes: Marsland parents speak about Richard.

Tonight, for our focus on Capril, we have two people with very different stories and experiences to share, as they help guide us through the topics of depression and suicide. Firstly, we have Richard’s mum, Alisson Marsland. And we also have local advertising and social media man-about-town, Tom Williamson.
