The OLLIE Foundation is a suicide prevention charity, set up in 2016 by three Hertfordshire parents who had each lost a son to suicide. They met in bereavement support and vowed to do all they could to stop another family going through the heartache they were experiencing.
OLLIE stands for One Life Lost Is Enough.
OLLIE provides wellbeing, prevention and intervention events, training, talks and panel events for professionals, parents and students. Their mission is to reduce the incidence of suicide, particularly among our young people.
One way OLLIE does this is through the provision of training and education to parents, children, teens and young adults and to all those with a duty of care for others.
They aim to reduce both the stigma and the fears people have in talking about suicide, as well as advance the pedagogy and discourse around suicide studies and effective early intervention and prevention techniques and strategies.
OLLIE always aims to share best practices, support curiosity, skills, capacities and knowledge so each generation can stay safer from suicide and bereavement from suicide.
