suicideTALK: A one-hour exploration and awareness-raising session suitable for all individuals and groups within communities. If you are concerned about suicide in your community this training can help you talk about one of the most taboo subjects in the world today.
If you work face to face with members of the LGBT community then SuicideTalk is for you. Grassroots Suicide Prevention, LGBT Switchboard, MindOut and the LGBT Community Safety Forum are working together to ensure that those working in the LGBT community are trained in having conversations about suicide.

This year we have trained over 1,000 people in Suicide alertness and Suicide prevention, we have reached over 37,000 downloads of our #StayAlive app (still counting), and so far more than 2,500 people have taken our “Tell Me” suicide prevention pledge.
"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."
