As part of our community work, we have secured funding and developed various projects that fit our charity's core beliefs about suicide and suicide prevention.
This is the UK's first suicide prevention mobile app and was instigated, researched and designed by Grassroots.
NHS Trusts, local authorities and others can integrate their local crisis provision in our popular "Stay Alive" suicide prevention app.
We encourage all citizens within our city to take a pledge to help themselves and others be safer from suicide.
A campaign aiming to foster open and direct conversations about men's concerns, including thoughts of suicide, in Brighton & Hove.
Grassroots provides a significant level of easily accessed, funded suicide prevention and mental health promotion training to local workers and community members.
Since 2011, Grassroots Suicide Prevention has held an event in Brighton & Hove each year on 10 September to mark World Suicide Prevention Day.
As part of Grassroots' and LivingWork's Suicide Safer Cities initiative, we are diligently working with local organisations and communities to achieve 'Suicide Safer City' designation for Brighton & Hove.
A project engaging young people creatively to promote suicide prevention in their communities, whilst creating on-street adverts for our mobile phone app.
We encourage businesses within our city to take a pledge to be more aware of the needs of colleagues who might be struggling with difficult feelings.
A 5 week campaign, launched on World Suicide Prevention Day 2016, raising funds to make our "Stay Alive" app even better.
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.
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.

"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."
