Grassroots is inviting everyone in the community to become part of a movement to prevent suicide through 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.
We would like to share some learning with you. Talking about suicide is stigmatised subject. What can you do to help break down this stigma?
Adapt your language, here are a few ways you can do that:

"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."
