Ep 08: 'Oli’s death could have been avoided' - A mother on a mission to prevent child suicide
Manage episode 358672649 series 3434924
Michelle Leigh set up the Oli Leigh trust after she lost her beloved son Oli at 16 to suicide. The Oli Leigh trust is a suicide prevention and mental wellbeing trust, granting funds to small charities that can deliver suicide prevention and wellbeing training.
Michelle is open, and honest, and I would venture to say damning on her perspective of how the system failed Oli and played a part in his taking his life by suicide. Michelle is a force to be reckoned with and you will no doubt pick up on her determination to provide the education that she feels is sorely lacking in our schools, to our teachers- around how to deal with children who are struggling like Oli.
