As we are currently unable to provide classroom based training, we are proud to support the LIVING WORKS START program.
If you are looking for an interim solution for Suicide Awareness training, CMHA Ottawa is offering the Living Works START program online for a discounted rate of $20 per person. You can purchase your individual license by clicking the link below. A portion of all proceeds are donated to COVID-19 relief efforts.
The course is 60 minutes, self directed and entirely online. LivingWorks Start teaches trainees to recognize when someone is thinking about suicide and connect them to help and support.
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.
About the Course
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.
Learn four basic steps to recognize persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them with suicide helping resources.
Anyone who might want to help; minimum age 15 years.
