Free mental health training for West Sussex SMEs

You may know that West Sussex County Council’s Public Health team are working with Grassroots Suicide Prevention to offer free mental health and suicide prevention training for Small to Medium-sized businesses in West Sussex.

National charity Grassroots work with organisations across the UK to deliver life-saving training in suicide prevention, mental health and self-harm.

Grassroots will work with businesses to find the training delivery option that best supports the needs of their workplace (options include open courses for individuals or tailored in-house/online training).

To access the free support, business owners or managers should contact the Grassroots team on

Grassroots are also currently inviting West Sussex SMEs to contribute to a survey to better understand the kind of mental health training they’d find most helpful, and I am hoping you could help promote this and the free training to SMEs in West Sussex via your social media and newsletters.

Here are the key details:

•             It is for decision maker around training, so people who run their own business, Managing Director, HR Directors etc.

•             It takes just over 5 mins and can be anonymous.

•             They would be helping a charity and their life saving work

•             They could win a Wellbeing Box worth £100 for their staff.

And here’s the link to the survey:
