always possible undertakes research for Grassroots Suicide Prevention
Grassroots Suicide Prevention is a Brighton-based charity that provides expertise, training and resources to help communities, organisations and individuals effectively support people at risk of suicide or experiencing mental health problems.
They do this via training for people working with vulnerable communities (ASIST, Mental Health First Aid, Understanding Self Harm); digital support and advice (Stay Alive app, online resources); advocacy (Real Talk Campaign); and consultancy for organisations wishing to develop policies and support strategies).
The pandemic created a surge in demand for services and the move to deliver training and consultancy online has presented an opportunity for Grassroots to reach a wider audience. Mental health is a major and increasing focus for many organisations, with more opportunities opening up in corporate and SME sectors.
always possible are undertaking research to:
- increase understanding about the main opportunities and challenges in scaling-up services, taking into new areas and expanding the digital offer
- understand the main themes and trends emerging in the mental health training / charity sector for further investigation
- identify potential avenues for funding and commissioning, with scan of what other organisations are offering and where gaps might be
We will provide a visual report with recommendations and facilitate a strategy day with presentation of the findings.
The always possible team supports a range of businesses and organisations to more effectively evaluate projects and services.
