Grassroots Suicide Prevention: supporting communities to prevent suicide, one life at a time. We teach suicide alertness and intervention skills to community members and professionals. Together we can make our communities safer from suicide.
Based in the South East of England, since 2006 we have trained over 5,000 people in suicide prevention and mental health both locally and nationally. We have seats on several advisory committees in Brighton & Hove and have contributed to both local and national suicide prevention and self-harm strategies. We are proudly working towards making Brighton & Hove the UK's first Suicide-Safer City.
Grassroots provides training to help you promote mental health and wellbeing in the people you care for. Some of our training even saves lives.
The training we offer is efficient and focused. With half-day course places starting at under £54 per place (even less when a whole course is booked), we think it represents great value for money.
Clients include both large and small organisations across South East England as well as individuals in Brighton & Hove and the surrounding areas.
For a second year, Grassroots will be marching in the Brighton Pride parade. You and your friends are invited to join us. We will meet at 10am on Saturday 6 August at Hove Lawns. Please wear orange and purple clothing if possible. GSP T-shirts will also be available on the morning along with other great accessories. If you are interested in marching with us please let us know in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/events/1769008666677798/
As part of crucial research around the use and impact of our award-winning Stay Alive suicide prevention app, we are looking for feedback from anyone who has ever used the app. Have you used the app with a client or patient? Have you used the app to help a friend? Have you downloaded the app to look up information about suicide? Have you used the app when in crisis? Please take this 10 minute survey and help make Stay Alive even better at helping those at risk of suicide: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2T5RXXT
"Suicide is everyone's business; it devastates so many lives no matter who you are, where you work or where you live. We want to use every method available to us to make Sussex, and beyond, a place where people thinking about suicide are supported and helped in their workplace and their community."
