MOLLY ROSE FOUNDATION
Live long - Stay strong

ABOUT US - The Molly Rose Foundation

Following the tragic loss of Molly Rose, the Russell family and their friends have successfully registered a charitable foundation in Molly’s memory

The aim of the Molly Rose Foundation is suicide prevention, targeted towards young people under the age of 25. We want to help spot those suffering from mental illness and connect them to the help, support and practical advice they need

MENTAL HEALTH

Annually in the UK around 6000 people lose their life to suicide, with young people under the age of 25 making up approximately 10% of this number. Since 2007 there has been a general increase in the UK rate of suicide and the Mental Health Foundation estimates that one person in fifteen will have made a suicide attempt at some point in their life. It is our belief that suicide can be prevented by raising awareness in the general public and by teaching children to speak more openly about their feelings and that it is OK not to be OK. We have three target areas:

ADVICE

To get help, the first thing you need to do is tell someone about how you are feeling. Talking about your fears and feelings is difficult – even to those you know love and care about us. So you may need help to find a way to do this

Some people find it easier to talk with people who they don’t know. If you look for advice on the Internet, make sure it comes from a trusted source like a charity. Avoid the bad advice that is available on many social media Apps

Everyone has a role to play in preventing young suicide. If you have concerns about others, only by asking about suicide can you encourage young people to speak openly about how they are feeling

When asking about suicide it is important to do so clearly and directly. Say “Are you thinking about suicide?” or “Are you thinking about ending your life?”, or “Are you thinking about killing yourself?”

Many people worry that asking about suicide might put the idea into a person’s head, or offend or anger them in some way, however research indicates that asking does not increase the risk

Many young people feel they are a burden or undeserving of support. By asking the question, you are showing that you are ready to listen and will help them to access support. Not asking is too great a risk to take
