Our Vision

We feel we must have ambition and can envisage an achievable desired state where deaths by suicide are very rare events. It’s a huge challenge and a big goal but achievable through prioritised, focused, practical actions to, for example:

  • make our communities and workplaces mentally healthy and psychologically safe places;
  • combine human intelligence and digital technology for earlier identification and intervention;
  • ‘design out suicide’ (or ‘design in suicide prevention’) in our built environment, education systems, health systems, and support systems for those known to be at risk or in danger (including restricting access to the means of suicide);
  • encourage every hospital, university, council, employer, industry association, professional society, etc to make practical plans for suicide prevention within their spheres of influence
  • build collaborative relationships with all those who share our belief that we can considerably reduce the number of suicides, with joint action to make that difference.

The act of suicide is a practical act – it needs practical actions to prevent it.

And suicide prevention is a mix of individual action and collective action, with everyone being able to make a contribution – from supporting individuals to collaborating in collective suicide prevention initiatives.

Our Practical Actions

In all its interactions and communications, The Jordan Legacy encourages high ambition in preventing suicides, promoting strategies and actions that can significantly reduce the numbers of deaths by suicide in the UK. We also challenge groups, organisations and bodies who appear to have low ambition.

The Jordan Legacy provides relevant information, advice, awareness-raising, education, and support. We share ‘what works’ with the general public and those groups, organisations, institutions and individuals who are able to help save lives.

We design and run events, conferences, workshops, awareness-raising campaigns, educational talks, radio shows, etc to help improve mental health and save lives.

We commission, carry out and disseminate research that can assist in improving mental health and suicide prevention.

And, finally, we understand that many of those who engage with us may be struggling with their mental health or suicidal thoughts. Whilst not a crisis support service, we do what we can to safeguard these individuals by providing direct support, where appropriate, with non-clinical coaching and social support, along with signposting and partnering with relevant professionals and clinical specialists.
