On Friday 8 September, Grassroots Suicide Prevention will be relaunching their suicide prevention App #StayAlive.
Stay Alive is the ideal tool to help people who are suffering with thoughts of suicide to be reminded of their own reasons for living and access support in times of crisis. It’s also a great resource for carers supporting people with thoughts of suicide.
We currently have 30,000 downloads and are looking to significantly add to this during World Suicide Prevention Day, on 10 September 2017. Your support could help save a life.
How? By downloading this free, award-winning app you will help highlight the importance of suicide prevention.
Take a minute, change a life.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Training Manager Greg Burgess. He has extensive knowledge of suicide prevention work and has previously lead on award winning partnerships in Scotland. We are excited to be working with Greg and are looking forward to his contributions to our new men's suicide prevention project in East Sussex.
"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."
