I Am Alive

We’re not often given the opportunity to help someone stay alive, unless perhaps we work for the emergency services.  A staggering 1 in 20 of us will have thoughts of suicide this year.  That number could include one of our friends, a family member or another other loved one.  Here at Grassroots we want to reduce the number of people who act on their thoughts of suicide, by reaching more people with the suicide intervention skills training that we deliver.

We have worked with to create an amazing and inspiring short video called ‘I Am Alive’ which is part of a campaign we are running to raise awareness of suicide prevention and reach out to those who need help. 

If you would like to help us create a more open, caring community prepared to help those at risk of suicide, then please take a few minutes to click on the link below and watch our video.  Please then forward it to 20 people you know.  You never know, you could be helping to save a life.

You can also click our website's Donate button and make a donation today.  Just £2 per month could buy training materials for one suicide first-aider.  Your help will help us as we support communities to prevent suicide.  

Thank you!
