Funded Training

In accordance with our core beliefs, a key part of our work is facilitating minimal cost mental health and suicide prevention training to those working with people at increased risk. We also deliver sponsored or fundraised safeTALK courses free to community members.

ASIST trainees

In Sussex, we have trained over 2,900 local workers for free or at token cost in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), Suicide Alertness for Everyone (safeTALK), 1 in 4 Mental Health Awareness, Working with Self Injury, Recovery or Wellbeing in the Workplace.

Several times a year, we deliver free Suicide Alertness for Everyone (safeTALK) training courses. These are available to all local community members. Some of these courses are funded through company or community sponsorship and some are made possible by the work of our many fundraisers and individual donators.

Previous safeTALK courses have been sponsored or fundraised by:

  • One Cent Call
  • James Mortimer in memory of DJ Pittsie
  • Dan Cowan
  • Allsorts/MindOut/Brighton & Hove LGBT Switchboard/Trans* Pride Brighton
  • Brighton Regency Round Table

If you or your organisation would like to sponsor a safeTALK suicide alertness course, please get in touch at training@prevent-suicide.org.uk.

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."
