#JustAnotherNumber Campaign

Many statistics show the worrying trend in suicide deaths but it's important to remember that each statistic is not #JustAnotherNumber. These are real lives cut short before they are able to reach their potential.

Jordan was a good looking young man, over 6ft tall, in a loving relationship with his girlfriend. He had a family who loved and cared about him and a wide network of friends.

Jordan held down a responsible, yet often stressful job, as an officer with the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). He had his own house and was a deeply caring and considerate individual.

Jordan was described as the kind of person who would light up a room when he walked into it and his friends told us that his dance moves were legendary! Yet, Jordan kept his mental health diagnosis private and secret from many of those who loved and cared about him and on that December day he died by suicide aged 34.

Here’s an important number to understand; suicide is the biggest killer of men and women under 35 – not cancer or diabetes, not heart attacks or even road traffic accidents – in the UK, you are more likely to die at your own hands before you reach 35 than by any other cause of death.

6000+ deaths by suicide in the UK each year is another number as is 50 – suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 years old.

Those who die by suicide are not just another number though.

Every person lost to suicide had the potential to thrive in life, and in most cases they didn’t actually want to die, they simply couldn’t continue living with the feelings of physical or mental pain they were enduring or the sense of entrapment or hopelessness that was overwhelming them.

This is how your £5 each month will help: Research of more than 1500 UK adults (aged 18+) showed that 5% seriously considered suicide and had made a plan. Your £5 a month will help us continually develop our suicide prevention initiatives and support those 5% who are at risk of ending their lives.

This is how your £10 each month will help: 200 schoolchildren, report as aged 10 and over die by suicide in the UK every year. Your £10 will enable us to deliver more talks and suicide prevention initiatives in schools.”

This is how your £20 each month will help: The Jordan Legacy’s own research has identified that 20% (1-in-5) of the population have ‘seriously considered’ suicide at some point – your £20 will ensure that we can continue to work in collaboration with others to prevent these thoughts turning to actions.

Why is this campaign so important?

If everyone who follows our work was to donate £5 per month we could continue to work on our mission without the distraction of needing to focus our attention on additional fundraising campaigns. As a small organisation this is massively important to us.

Every moment focused on our suicide prevention work means an opportunity to save another life.

If you can afford to make a monthly donation, then thank you, it really does mean a lot to us – these are difficult times economically and we know that so many other important causes could be benefit from your money also.
