About us

Grassroots is a UK leader in suicide prevention. We create safe spaces in our communities for Real Talk about suicide. We support people in our communities to become ChangeMakers: to develop the skills and confidence needed to save lives. Through Real Talk.

Grassroots is inviting everyone in the community to become part of a movement to prevent suicide through Real Talk.

What is Real Talk?

Real Talk invites more people, real people into the suicide prevention space to get talking about suicide.

We know this is something that people find it hard to talk about, so we are providing the opportunity for people to gain more confidence in talking about suicide and to start feeling comfortable with the language and the feelings that come up.

That takes courage - courage that we all have.

That’s when we can start to have real conversations, Real Talk about suicide.

What do we believe?

  • We believe we can all make a difference.
  • We believe that recovery from suicidal thoughts and suicidal behaviours is possible.
  • We believe that suicide can be prevented through open and direct conversations. We call this Real Talk.

Conversations save lives.

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."
