Our talks

How do you prevent a suicide? What can your school, workplace, community or you personally do to ensure that we begin to reverse the increasing numbers of deaths by one of the most preventable causes in society? The Jordan Legacy has a reputation for delivering inspiring, lived experience talks, which will make you think, reflect and believe that it is possible for us to move towards a 'Zero Suicide Society'.

Do you want a talk that will help your people understand how they can support each other and themselves when signs of poor mental health are spotted or when there appears to be a risk of suicide or self-harm to an individual?

Perhaps you need your leaders and managers to be inspired, encouraged and more committed to creating a psychologically safe workplace culture?

Maybe your organisation, group, education centre or community wants to know more about how to minimise the risk of suicides by having the appropriate frameworks, policies and procedures in place?
