Time for a Breakthrough in Suicide Prevention

The Jordan Legacy's Zero Suicide Society Transformation Programme

In 2023, we published what’s been described as a “groundbreaking” report ‘Moving Towards a Zero Suicide Society‘, mapping out what such a society looks like and the practical actions that will get us there.

2024 is the year, we bring our ‘Zero Suicide Society Transformation Programme’ to life!

From January 1st, we began rolling out the Programme. Meetings have been taking place and many more scheduled for the first half of 2024, with our collaborative partners, Suicide Prevention Leads, Suicide Prevention Partnership Groups, ICBs, NHS Trusts, Councils, Government Departments, MPs, employers, industry associations, sports clubs, charities, community organisations, schools, colleges, universities, designers, Tech for Good entrepreneurs, etc.

And then its…..

The #ZeroSuicideSociety #JoinTheDots Tour 

This is a significant, public tour from the Humber to the Mersey in June 2024.

We will #JoinTheDots by bringing together all the key ‘stakeholders’ like people with lived/living experiences of suicide; Suicide Prevention Leads; people from local & central government; people from health, education, the arts, media, sport, charities & CICs; people from key sectors such as Construction; people designing suicide prevention apps and ‘digital life saving’ solutions; groups & communities whose voices are rarely heard…and anyone who wants to be ‘part of the solution’ in helping us move towards a Zero Suicide Society and get the suicide numbers on a downward trend, towards zero.

More information to come soon.

Here are some of the key highlights of the programme:

  • A showcase of all the ‘pieces of the puzzle’, included in our ‘Moving Towards a Zero Suicide Society‘ report that, together, will get the suicide numbers down, towards zero.
  • Joining together all those currently involved in suicide prevention but who don’t regularly connect or collaborate.
  • Highlighting people & organisations who have current or potential ‘solutions’ to help bring the numbers down.
  • Learning from people with diverse lived/living experiences of suicide.
  • Showing how ‘Continuous Systemic Action Learning’ (CSAL) is proven to get the numbers down.
  • Demonstrating how a co-ordinated, collaborative, integrated approach where there are no ‘winners & losers’ and where “Everyone is a priority for someone” will minimise the number of deaths by suicide.
