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.
