Suicide alertness for everyone
safeTALK is a workshop for the community that prepares participants to identify and engage people with thoughts of suicide and connect them with further help and care. (3.5 hours)
Become an Alert Helper
Learn four basic steps to recognize persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them with suicide helping resources.
Why come to safeTALK?
Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help. Often these opportunities are missed, dismissed or avoided – leaving people more alone and at greater risk. safeTALK training prepares you to help by using TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to identify and engage people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them with further help and care.
safeTALK, a half a day workshop, is offered by certified trainers to a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 30 people.
Who should attend safeTALK?
Anyone who might want to help; minimum age 15 years.
