Need help now?

If you believe someone you work with is in crisis or feeling suicidal get emergency help here.

If you have concerns about someone’s well-being or behaviour and feel they are at risk of harming themselves, OLLIE’s resources in our Help and Advice section can guide you through a supportive and sensitive conversation to ensure those you are supporting are safe for now. If you are short of time, take a look at our FAQs to share how to have a potentially life-saving conversation.

During office hours, and if there isn’t an immediate threat to life, there is usually someone at OLLIE you can call for additional guidance (and signposting) if you would prefer to speak with a trained expert directly.

Training for you

“What signs would suggest a colleague or client is suicidal? How do you even ask if they are suicidal? If I talk or ask about suicide, will I put the idea in their head? Talking about suicide is too difficult, can we focus on mental health instead?”

OLLIE has a wealth of experience in answering all of these questions and more, developing and delivering suicide and mental health programmes of support and training to professionals across the globe.

We are dedicated to tailoring your training to meet your specific requirements and invite you to start a conversation with our team about your needs by contacting us here. Explore our extensive programme of training focused on suicide prevention, mental health, well-being and workplace bereavement here.

Training for those you support

Our wide range of talks, education and well-being activities can support EVERYONE and may play a useful role in your wider well-being plan to help those whom you support. Both our suicide prevention, mental health and well-being training sessions are open to the public, available online and fully funded for parents, carers, young people and anyone who needs a ticket. Should you wish to signpost those you support to our public programme, please guide them to our training pages. Should you wish to organise an in-house session, we’ll be very pleased to start a conversation about your needs.

Information and support

Prioritising your well-being can often take a backseat. At OLLIE, we understand the toll this can take on your team’s mental health. We champion meaningful self-care practices tailored to your unique needs. Whether you seek well-being talks, guidance for a Safe Plan, or a simple conversation with our team, we’re here to help. Your role may be to support others, but our mission is to support you. Let OLLIE be your partner in creating a workplace that values and nurtures your well-being. Your journey to a healthier, balanced work life can start with OLLIE.

If you have lost someone in your workplace to suicide, please accept OLLIE’s deepest condolences. Whilst no words can heal the ripple effect of heartbreak, we hope that these resources and organisations may help guide you, and those you are supporting, during this difficult time. Should you wish to invite OLLIE into your workplace to support your team to navigate their bereavement, we offer a guided workshop called Write to Release™ to guide colleagues through their grief.

Need a speaker?

Whether you are looking for a keynote speaker for your conference or someone for an informal discussion with your team, The OLLIE Foundation, as thought leaders in suicide prevention, can offer an expert who can engage in meaningful conversation, find out more.

Our speakers are available online and in person depending on location. To have a conversation about your needs with our team, contact us.
