To everyone who took part in this years St Albans Half Marathon in aid of OLLIE. Also thanks to Comp365 for the donation from their recent networking event.
If I Can Stop This Happening To Any Other Family, I Will.
I couldn’t imagine a more deserving enterprise than OLLIE.
Anyone learning the skills of suicide alertness and safe suicide intervention has a skill, quite literally, for life.
Please encourage people to talk to others about how they are feeling so they can either realise they are not alone in how they are feeling and start to get help.
Since TJ died my world has become an emptier place. I have changed forever & life has lost its lustre. I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone. If I can do anything to stop others experiencing this then that’s what I must do.

This week is Loneliness Awareness Week. Did you know that loneliness is more likely to affect young people aged 16-24? According to research in 2018, that's 3 times higher than for people aged over 65.
Unfortunately, like mental health, loneliness has a stigma attached to it. Loneliness Awareness Week is about breaking that down and saying that it's okay to feel lonely. It's a normal human emotion.
What can you do to help someone who is feeling isolated?
Talk. Visit. Knock on a neighbour's door. Strike up a conversation in the supermarket. Be present. Put down your phone. RECONNECT with people. It doesn't take much but a little goes a very long way.
