Funded Mental Health and Suicide Intervention Training

Funded Mental Health and Suicide Intervention Training

Are you eligible for some funded training?

Grassroots is very happy to be able to offer a number of funded suicide alertness, suicide intervention and mental health training places, provided by NHS Brighton & Hove.
In previous years we have been able to offer funded places completely free of charge, but this year we are asking participants to contribute a small amount (£6 for half-day, £16 for 2-day) towards the cost of the training. This will go towards essential admin, as well as refreshments and venue hire, and will allow us to provide more training in a more sustainable way.

To be eligible for a place funded by NHS Brighton & Hove you need to be working in the Brighton & Hove area with/for one of the following target groups:

People who have experienced domestic abuse; Survivors of sexual abuse; Prison leavers; Ex-service personnel; People who are unemployed or at risk of unemployment; People who are homeless and those at risk of homelessness; Older people; Emergency services; LGBT; Women during or after pregnancy; People bereaved by suicide; BME communities; People who self harm; People with long term physical conditions; People experiencing financial difficulties; Mental Health services; Substance misuse services; Male specific projects; People experiencing relationship breakdown; High risk occupational groups (doctors, dentists, vets, farmers etc.); Refugees and asylum seekers; Teachers and welfare/pastoral services at schools, colleges and universities.

Funded training is limited to 3 places per course per organisation, and if in doubt participants should check with their manager/training coordinator before booking to ensure that places are available for their organisation.

For more information about funded places please contact us directly at or on 01273 675764.
