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.
We warmly invite you to attend a day of activities at the Synergy Centre to mark World Suicide Prevention Day in Brighton & Hove this September 10th. The theme for World Suicide Prevention this year is 'Connect, Communicate & Care'. All planned activities as part of this event will be centred around these three key themes.

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/
"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."
