We are a Brighton based charity with a simple but powerful goal: that no one should have to contemplate suicide alone.
We believe suicide prevention is everyone's business and together we can make our communities safer from suicide.
When someone is potentially having suicidal thoughts, talking can really help. Read our top five suggestions if you are worried about someone else.
We deliver effective, efficient, and affordable training in suicide alertness and intervention, including the the World Health Organisation (WHO) approved safeTALK and ASIST training programmes. We host safeTALK and ASIST Training for Trainers courses and promote the LivingWorks™ community model of suicide prevention across Sussex and beyond. Since 2006, Grassroots has trained over 6,000 people in suicide prevention and mental health.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention have strengthened the board by appointing four new trustees, Caroline Hounsell, Steve Bulbeck, Emma Wadey and Roger De Casanove.
Each new trustee was selected for their commitment to Grassroots’ aims, their professional integrity, and proven strategic skills. Their wide range of experience is going to be invaluable in enacting the board’s governance role, and supporting Chief Executive, Stella Comber, to develop Grassroots’ business strategy.
In 2018, the expanded board will be focusing on supporting Stella and her team to explore new ways to build on Grassroots’ success so far in helping people understand suicide prevention is everyone’s business, and how to work together to make our communities safer from suicide.
We thank former trustees Jourdan Durairaj and Lisa Rodrigues who stepped down at the end of 2017, for all their support, wisdom and work over the past few years.
Grassroots Suicide Prevention is seeking a new Project Lead to strengthen our committed and dynamic staff team. Find out more here
"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."
