Stay Alive Mobile Phone Application
A suicide prevention pocket resource for the UK, Stay Alive offers help and support both to people with thoughts of suicide and to people concerned about someone else. The app can be personalised to tailor it to the user. This is the first version of Stay Alive. The app will be updated following an academic review and we are seeking next stage funding to help us develop the app further, including a location-enabled function to show the user support services in their vicinity. If you are interested in contributing to funding the next stage of the app please get in touch. (click here for further information on how to download the app).

Funded by The Big Lottery Fund, this one-minute film, written by young poet Engineer Al, and animated by the acclaimed artist October Jones, is the first part of an Exposure campaign to reduce male suicide.
Please watch and share. Raising awareness to ensure more young men feel comfortable talking about their problems is a key way of combatting suicide. The silence is killing us. No More. To view video (click here).
A short video called 'I am Alive' has been developed by Brighton non-profit company Grassroots Training.
The video contains personal accounts of how people's reasons for living, however small, helped them to choose life instead of suicide.
