Community Solutions

For this part of our strategy, our actions are aimed at benefitting communities, including; schools, colleges and universities, local businesses, non-professional and professional sports clubs and teams, local chambers of commerce and business groups and associations, local charities and support groups, local NHS and mental health teams, suicide prevention leads, charities and other third sector organisations and groups by sharing relevant information, advice, awareness-raising, education, and support to help create communities where suicide prevention is more openly discussed and deaths by suicide become increasingly rare events.

We will collaborate with local communities and those providing mental health and suicide prevention support, who support our vision to move toward a Zero Suicide society. We will identify and share what is working well within these communities, so that others may learn from these initiatives and implement similar approaches.

Design Out Suicide

Originally a broader concept developed to take a design thinking and process engineering approach to all the steps that lead up to someone taking their own life, including restricting access to means, this concept has been embraced by those involved in the design and construction of outdoor structures and places, including places which are often chosen by people intent on ending their own lives.

For this part of our Zero Suicide strategy, our actions are aimed at engaging with those who are actively involved in supporting mental health and preventing suicides in the design of the built environment; and also those employed in the construction sector where suicide rates are high.

Workplace Wellbeing

Most of us will spend a third of our lives at work, so it’s important that workplaces are psychologically safe environments, where mental health and employee wellbeing are seen as core business issues.

Most people who take their lives each year are employed. In a supportive workplace environment, the involvement of leaders, managers and all employees is an important component in suicide prevention.

Digital & Human Lifesaving Systems

For this part of our Zero Suicide strategy, our aim is to engage with those working in digital communications technology fields, including those developing apps, real time surveillance solutions, social media platforms, websites and other emerging technologies, to raise awareness about suicide and encourage the research and development of practical solutions which will help prevent deaths by suicide.

The Jordan Legacy will continuously look for gaps and breakthrough ideas via the positive application of digital communications linked to human support systems. This includes complementing and challenging existing suicide prevention and wellbeing research and activities.

Jordan’s Place – a centre for hope

Our actions are specifically aimed at benefitting the general public and those more directly impacted by mental health challenges and suicide, by providing relevant information, advice, awareness-raising, education, and support to help move the UK to a society where suicide prevention is more openly discussed and deaths by suicide are rare events.

We aim to continually promote the public benefits of advancing mental health and suicide prevention approaches; developing, collating and sharing ‘what works’ with the general public and those groups, organisations, institutions and individuals who are able to help save lives.
