Our talks

Understanding the mental health landscape and recognising the circumstances which may mean someone is struggling or having suicidal thoughts, is a simple but vital skill to learn but one we should all possess. Learning how to spot the signs of poor mental health in yourself or in others and how to open up a conversation and support someone who is struggling, could save a life.

The Jordan Legacy’s talks are delivered from lived experience of poor mental health and suicide, combined with many years of speaking to public and corporate audiences.

“The talk was incredibly touching, emotional but most importantly educational and colleagues left with a greater awareness and practical steps to take should they be supporting someone who was considering ending their own life.”

You will hear about some of the myths surrounding mental health and suicide and how to break down stigma.

Our talks also include how to look after your own wellbeing and prevent potential mental health issues from developing.

Talks can be delivered to:

  • Public groups and other community settings, to increase knowledge and awareness about mental health and suicide
  • Schools, where age appropriate sessions enable students to better understand how to support themselves and their peers and teachers and parents can also be equipped with important skills to support children and young people
  • Workplaces, where we focus on how to create psychologically safer and thriving workplaces

“Steve’s presentation 2022 was so informative and powerful; Since then, I have given people my time and asked the question “do you have suicidal thoughts”. I haven’t apologised for asking that question either and those I have helped have appreciated me asking.”
