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.

Training courses

Grassroots provides training to help you promote mental health and wellbeing in the people you care for. Some of our training even saves lives.

Clients include both large and small organisations across South East England as well as individuals in Brighton & Hove and the surrounding areas.

The training we offer is efficient and focused. With half-day course places starting at under £58 per place (even less when a whole course is booked), we think it represents great value for money.

Consultancy services

Grassroots Suicide Prevention attends and has excellent working relationships with various strategy groups and committees. We are also available to hire for consulting activities.

Grassroots offers consultancy to organisations wishing to maximise and plan their suicide prevention activities, including training needs and delivery, policy and procedures implementation and referral and signposting to crisis, local and national resources.

We recently held our inaugural rounders and BBQ fundraising event in Preston Park.  The event was a great success with over 50 people attending and £668 raised – enough for us to deliver a safeTALK suicide alertness course to community members, free of charge.  Thanks to Gaudio for designing and making our fabulous trophy, and to Sarah West for producing this great video of the day.”

Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton Pavilion says...

"I’d really like to recognise the fantastic progress that Grassroots Suicide Prevention has made in helping Brighton & Hove to become a suicide safer city.
Thanks to their amazing work and support throughout the city we’re on track to becoming the first place in the whole world to achieve that status; and that really matters, because it means that we can look out for one another, and help each other to avoid suicide.
It means we can also challenge the taboos around suicide, and to say that is it OK to talk about it, and it is OK to ask for help. That’s why I'm making a call to everybody in Brighton & Hove to get involved in this initiative, to take the pledge to look out for one another, and to say ‘together, we can help people to avoid suicide.
