Participants on MHFA courses come from a wide range of backgrounds. It is suitable for people with lived experience of mental health issues or illness, family members wanting to gain more understanding of what a relative is going through, employers, and people who are likely to come into contact with those at risk of mental health problems, such as police, ambulance staff or community workers.
This is a cost-effective way of training up to 25 people in your own venue. One trainer delivers the MHFA Lite session, which lasts half a day with short breaks. Please contact us at email@example.com for a quote, available dates or more information.
Grassroots Suicide Prevention have strengthened the board by appointing four new trustees, Caroline Hounsell, Steve Bulbeck, Emma Wadey and Roger De Casanove.
Each new trustee was selected for their commitment to Grassroots’ aims, their professional integrity, and proven strategic skills. Their wide range of experience is going to be invaluable in enacting the board’s governance role, and supporting Chief Executive, Stella Comber, to develop Grassroots’ business strategy.
In 2018, the expanded board will be focusing on supporting Stella and her team to explore new ways to build on Grassroots’ success so far in helping people understand suicide prevention is everyone’s business, and how to work together to make our communities safer from suicide.
We thank former trustees Jourdan Durairaj and Lisa Rodrigues who stepped down at the end of 2017, for all their support, wisdom and work over the past few years.
Grassroots Suicide Prevention is seeking a new Project Lead to strengthen our committed and dynamic staff team. Find out more here
