Preventing suicide by improving mental wellbeing

We must accept that anxiety and depression are as much a part of us as any other aspect of our being – we must not shy away from talking openly about them.. For Urgent Assistance Visit Our Resources Page





Jordan's Story

Jordan was a son, a brother, a stepson, a stepbrother, a loving boyfriend, a grandson, an uncle, a cousin and a best friend. He was tall and handsome and turned many a head, male and female. His friends both loved and envied him. At his funeral they described Jordan as; well-mannered, a great listener, kind and considerate, intelligent, cool but humble, ridiculously handsome, a true gentleman, humorous, “being a friend with him was never a chore”, “he was the person I would usually turn to at difficult times like this”, “he was the best and most loyal friend I ever had”, “He was remarkable in every sense” Jordan was the kind of person who would stop and chat to homeless people and to local strangers – only a few days before he left us, he’d stopped to speak with an old lady who was sweeping leaves from the public pathway in front of her house. He told her what a good job she was doing. Jordan was also strong – he’d battled with severe depression for many years. He loved his family and his friends so much that he would often protect them from the ultimate depths of his despair, but he was always there for them, no matter how difficult his day was. There was nothing selfish about Jordan, not even at the moment he chose to end his pain, when he took the time to write notes to Charlotte and his family to let us know that he loved us. The Jordan Legacy operates on the values and principles Jordan lived by and is committed to positively impact on the emotional well-being of others. Our goal is to help as many people as possible to make a different choice than the one Jordan felt he had to make on that day in December 2019.

Our Services

Understanding that you are not alone and that others are experiencing the same level of anxiety, distress, suicidal thoughts or bereavement is vitally important.

Feeling that no one could possibly understand what you’re going through, can lead to even deeper feelings of anxiety and depression and possibly worse.
