Grassroots is an award-winning charity and UK leader in suicide prevention. We believe that suicide can be prevented through open and direct conversations. We call this Real Talk. We provide people with the skills and confidence needed to save lives through our training, innovation, and thought-provoking campaigns. But that’s not all. We make change. We work with ChangeMakers - the people who share our beliefs and want to make a difference.
When someone is potentially having suicidal thoughts, talking can really help. Read our top five suggestions if you are worried about someone else.
We deliver effective, efficient, and affordable training in suicide alertness and intervention, including the the World Health Organisation (WHO) approved safeTALK and ASIST training programmes. We host safeTALK and ASIST Training for Trainers courses and promote the LivingWorks™ community model of suicide prevention across Sussex and beyond. Since 2006, Grassroots has trained over 6,000 people in suicide prevention and mental health.

"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."
