Welcome

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.

Responding to the launch of the Stay Alive app Emma Wadey, Director of Nursing Standards and Safety at Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, said:

"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."
