Taking on a challenge can be a personally fulfilling and life-affirming experience. It is also an opportunity to engage your friends, family, and colleagues through sponsorship. You might consider:

  • Running the Brighton Marathon/Half-marathon
  • Going on a planned bike ride
  • Walking or hiking
  • The Tough Mudder Challenge
  • An alternative personal challenge, such as growing or cutting your hair, doing “Stoptober” or growing an epic moustache for “Movember”

Whatever you do is up to you. We can provide a t-shirt, information booklets about Grassroots, and your personal sponsorship page on JustGiving. And, of course, you have our support and our best wishes in your endeavours.  

If you’re taking a challenge and would like to collect sponsorship, please contact us at office@prevent-suicide.org.uk.

First suicideTALK delivered in Brighton & Hove

Grassroots are incredibly proud of our 20 new ambassadors who took an hour out of their day to take suicideTALK on 25 October 2017.

The 20 members of the public are now equipped with the skills and confidence to ask about suicide. Talking about suicide openly and honestly lets other people know it's ok to ask for help, and that they can talk to you. It's also crucial in helping to de-stigmatise using the word "suicide" in conversations. If more people are asking for help with their thoughts of suicide then it could mean more suicides are prevented.

The first suicideTALK delivered in Brighton & Hove was been funded by donations on World Suicide Prevention Day 2017, so we would like to thank the public in Brighton for helping to make this course happen.
