'Tell Me!' is a simple suicide prevention pledge that anyone can take to help prevent suicide. It encourages us to be alert to our own needs and reach out to others we care about.Whoever you are, wherever you live, we encourage you to take the pledge to have open, honest and direct conversations about suicide.

Brighton & Hove City Council's Director of Public Health, Dr Tom Scanlon, said:
“Every suicide is a tragedy. For people thinking of taking their own lives being able to talk to someone can literally be the difference between life and death. We wholeheartedly support the Grassroots 'Tell Me' initiative as part of Brighton & Hove's plan to be a world leader in suicide prevention by 2015.”
A Pledge Ambassador is an individual who has encouraged 20 people or more to take the Tell Me Pledge. To become a Pledge Ambassador, create a team name (be a creative as you like!) and all you need is twenty signed paper copies or submissions online. We ask for all pledgers from within the same team to write the same team name on the pledge slip or online form (bit.ly/TMpledge). This way it is easy to spot teams and count the pledges for each team. For more information about becoming a Pledge Ambassador, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
A Pledge Champion is an organisation that publicly supports the pledge and one where a significant proportion of staff have taken the pledge. For more information about your organisation becoming a Pledge Champion, please contact email@example.com
The 'Tell Me!' pledge is part of Grassroots' Suicide Safer Brighton & Hove initiative.
Grassroots acknowledges the work done by STOP Suicide in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire with their STOP Suicide pledge. If you live in that area, please click here: www.stopsuicidepledge.org

"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."
