As part of our ongoing #HopeForLifeUK initiatives for 2021/22, The Jordan Legacy has hosted several hugely successful virtual events, including the launch of our #HopeForLifeUK campaign in January 2021, with more than 350 registered to attend and another 430 for our Design Out Suicide panel (see below) discussion conference.

August 11th 2022 – a presentation and discussion event ‘Let’s Talk About Suicide?!’ 

Talking openly about suicide and suicide prevention is at the heart of the solution to reducing the number of suicides, but many people and organisations are uncomfortable about having such conversations.

  • How can we encourage and facilitate open communication around suicide and suicide prevention?
  • What is considered good practice when talking openly on such a sensitive subject? What are the pitfalls to avoid?
  • What has your experience been of ‘talking about suicide’?

This event focuses on this crucial topic, sharing what we have learned and inviting you to share what you have learned from ‘talking about suicide’ (or being uncomfortable talking about it!).

Earlier this year, The Jordan Legacy partnered with research agency MEL Research to carry out a survey among a nationally representative sample of 1,500 adults across the UK. We wanted to ask some of the questions that others appear reluctant to ask (including how many people have had suicidal thoughts), and to find out more about the experiences, knowledge and views of a cross-section of UK adults.

We will share other results from this survey at the event on 11 August. Some may surprise you, some may confirm what you knew already or suspected. All will provide food for thought, and will help foster further (open) conversations.
