Event description
A celebration of all that The Jordan Legacy CIC and its community of supporters have achieved in helping to prevent suicides during 2021

About this Event

Imagine an event filled with people who have saved lives - each person called to the stage or streamed live, via online video call, has done something amazing to save the life of someone, perhaps even someone they didn't know.

The reality

Each year almost 1 million people take their own lives somewhere in the world. In 2019, 6591 men and women in England died by suicide - 75% of these were men. In fact, suicide is the biggest killer of men aged under 45 and the highest suicide rate is men aged 45-49.

Even the young are struggling, with suicide accounting for almost 1600 deaths of people aged under 35 in the UK each year - reports suggest that loneliness plays a key part in many young people's decision to end their own lives, with those aged 16-24 often feeling more lonely than older age groups.

#HopeForLife(UK) was launched as a project, by The Jordan Legacy CIC , on January 21st 2021 (see a recording of the launch event on this website page) to encourage people from local communities and businesses to undertake activities or initiatives that will have a positive impact on those struggling with their mental wellbeing or who may be contemplating suicide.

This conference will showcase all of the initiatives which have taken place, under the banner of The Jordan Legacy, during 2021, demonstrating the impact each one has had in helping prevent suicides.

This event is about hope

This is ultimately an event with the emphasis on 'Hope'. A line -up of inspiring speakers, including those who have lived with their own mental health issues or have been faced with having to support someone they love who is struggling with their mental welbeing. We will hear powerful stories from survivors of suicide attempts and how they value life now more than ever. Those who have lost loved ones to suicide will talk of they now live around their grief and how they've been able to continue living, despite their life being completely shattered in pieces. These stories will make you think, they'll make you cry and at times, they'll even make you laugh, as you discover how the power of humour can help us cope with even the most difficult of times.

You will leave this conference feeling inspired and with hope in your heart, knowing that this world is not a bad place and that there are some incredible people, doing some amazing things, under the most challenging of circumstances. You will also go away from this event understanding how you can make a difference to someone you know or even a complete stranger, who may be struggling with their mental health or considering endig their own life.

Our Why

We will also be sharing The Jordan Legacy’s plans for 2022. The Jordan Legacy was established in 2020 by Steve Phillip, the father of Jordan Phillip, who took his own life on December 4th 2019.

Full details, including speaker line-up, coming soon.
