Holding onto Hope is a podcast series from Lifeline Australia, in which people who have come through the darkness of suicidality share the connection that gave them hope to continue living.

Lachie Samuel is a former FIFO mining worker, flying in and out of some of the most remote, desolate places in Australia, places where male suicide and mental health issues are rife.

In his Holding on to Hope podcast, Lachie explains how he also became one of its victims and how he went on to turn pain into purpose.
