Developing and witnessing good practice in suicide prevention with young people
Preventing suicide among young people by delivering emotional and mental health workshops in schools
I am a founder of the If U Care Share Foundation (IUCSF) – a suicide-prevention and bereavement-support charity.
As part of my Fellowship I travelled to the USA to explore suicide prevention in young people. Since returning, I have led on the work the foundation does with young people up and down the country working with over 10,000 young people. The main aim of the Fellowship was to explore the difference in education, systems around suicide prevention and how this could be replicated in the UK. IUCSF now deliver workshops for all ages four years and above, with the ultimate aim of preventing suicide. The contacts and connections I made help to solidify their work and grow partnerships within the elite football game. IUCSF are a chosen provider for mental-health and suicide-prevention workshops throughout the professional game.
The Fellowship has saved lives and will continue to do so.
