Since we launched in 2016, The OLLIE Foundation has gone from strength to strength. We have now trained over 2000 which means the world has an additional 2000 people whose radar is more finely tuned to those around them who may be vulnerable to suicidal ideation. It also means 2000 people are more confident to respond appropriately to suicidal thinking and provide support, comfort, signpost or engage the relevant services needed.
In addition to this, the number of people we have reached through our informal talks and workshops to individuals and groups from all types of communities takes the number of people we have reached well into the thousands.
Through continued support, funding and donations we have added to the current training we offer, which now includes Mental Health First Aid Youth, Goalsetting workshops and parenting programmes on self-harm. You can read more about each training programme we offer from the training menu and see our open dates which anyone can book onto. If you are interested in booking in-house training please contact us and we can discuss your requirements.
