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.

Course dates and booking - Event brite

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.

Responding to the launch of the Stay Alive app Emma Wadey, Director of Nursing Standards and Safety at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, said:

"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."
