Samaritans embrace pupils

Every secondary school in Britain and Ireland is to receive a pack from the charity Samaritans to help them deal with emotionally troubled teenagers.

Danny McNamara, lead singer of the pop band Embrace, talks on the DVD about his emotional problems as a teenager and how he turned to Samaritans for help.
