Eligibility for a funded training place

This training has been funded by Public Health at Brighton & Hove City Council. To be eligible for a funded place you need to be working in the Brighton & Hove area with people in vulnerable or high risk groups. As a guide, training places are initially limited to 3 places per course, per organisation. However, for larger organisations further places may be available.

The following exclusion criteria apply to eligibility for funded places:

  • People not working or volunteering within Brighton & Hove City (City boundary here)
  • Staff working in traditional Adult Social Care roles
  • Employees of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

If you are unsure about your eligibility for a funded place, or would like further information please contact Grassroots Suicide Prevention directly.


What is Understanding and Working with Self Injury?
It is a half-day educational and awareness raising workshop, with an emphasis on experiential learning and participation.

Who is it for?
Anyone involved in supporting someone who self injures: including health professionals, support workers, housing staff, teachers, youth workers and volunteers.

What are the training goals?
The session combines various teaching methods including discussion, an experiential exercise, small group and pair work and whole group discussion. Each participant receives a resource pack with further learning materials and information about sources of support. The workshop is facilitated to encourage a safe and effective learning environment.
Areas addressed in the workshop include:

  • Attitudes and preconceptions toward self-injury
  • The dynamics, meaning and functions of self-injury
  • Causes and triggers
  • Cycles of harm
  • Helpful and unhelpful responses to people who self-injure
  • Alternative coping strategies
  • Organisational and clinical responses to self injury

Cancellation with more than 4 weeks’ notice – 10% charge
Cancellation with 1-4 weeks’ notice – 50% charge
Less than 1 week’s notice – no refund

2. PublicHealth Brighton & Hove City Council Funded Places

If you have been allocated a PublicHealth Brighton & Hove City Council funded place it is our policy to charge a fee (currently £25 for half-day courses) for non-attendance with less than one week’s notice. This is because there are certain costs that we incur in organising the course and these are non-refundable at short notice. We have introduced this policy because if we are unable to demonstrate good attendance to our funders it will be more difficult to secure future funding for these courses.


Whole Courses

Whole Courses can be a cost-effective way of training your team in your own venue. If your organisation is based in Brighton & Hove and works with at risk target groups we may be able to offer a discount based on the allocation of funded places. Please contact us to discuss your exact training needs, and possible discounts and funding options.

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.
