  • Feel confident helping someone experiencing a problem
  • Provide help on a first aid basis
  • Help prevent someone from hurting themselves or others

Talk To Us: Suicide prevention is everybody's business.


The "Talk To Us" business pledge


Brighton & Hove has a very high suicide rate and we want to work with businesses to change that. Businesses are uniquely placed to reach out to their staff and colleagues who might be thinking of suicide. Most people who die by suicide are of working age and many will be in employment. By signing up to this pledge companies can be more aware of the needs of colleagues who might be struggling with difficult feelings and be able to offer some support and information about where to go for help. 1 in 20 of us consider suicide in a 2 week period and business people are no different. Together we can help make our city safer from suicide. Take the Talk To us pledge here.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention

Grassroots Suicide Prevention delivers training that saves lives. Very few, if any of us, are untouched by suicide. We believe that suicide is a community health problem and that suicide can be prevented.



We promote and deliver ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training), a 2 day workshop that teaches a model of suicide first aid. 


We offer a range of training programmes to complement ASIST, including SafeTALK (Suicide Alertness), One in Four (Mental Health Awareness) and Self Injury (Understanding & Working with Self Injury).



We are very happy to deliver courses in-house to your organisation; please ring or e-mail us to find out more.
