Skydiving Against Stigma

Anna Mansfield was just 44 when she died by suicide on 1 May 2015, leaving behind a devastated, loving family including her husband and 2 young children.

The loss of Michael’s daughter Anna, alongside the loss by suicide of Yvette’s friend 5 months previously, are the reasons SOS was founded.

Anyone bereaved by suicide fully understands the devastation losing a loved one to suicide brings.

SOS has always had one core aim – to help grow conversation and compassion by reducing shame, stigma and silence around suicide.

To honour the memory of Anna and all those who’ve passed by suicide and to speak out against stigma, on 1 May 2021, the 6th anniversary of Anna’s passing, 5 people are ‘Skydiving against Stigma’ for SOS at Hinton Airfield in Brackley, Oxfordshire.

We are delighted to announce that 3 of our support line volunteers alongside TV psychologist Emma Kenny and her husband Peter, will be bravely jumping for us and we send our deepest gratitude to them all.

Our thanks to our partner Travel Radio for encouraging Emma to dive for us!  If you’d like to support our jumpers and our campaign, then you can donate at: virginmoneygiving.com/fund/SKYDIVINGAGAINSTSTIGMA
