About Grassroots Suicide Prevention

About us

In the UK, 115 people die by suicide every week. We are working to change that.

We do know that suicides can be prevented with timely intervention and anyone can learn these life-saving skills.

We can all reduce the stigma around suicide by campaigning for change and talking about it openly.

Our vision is a future where more lives are saved from suicide.

Our experienced trainers deliver standard and bespoke courses for individuals, groups and businesses. Grassroots Suicide Prevention's online and offline courses cover suicide, self-harm, mental health, talking about suicide and other key topics.
