What is SafeTALK?
SafeTALK is a half day training program that prepares participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. These specific skills are called suicide alertness and are taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help reduce suicide risk in their communities. Following a SafeTALK workshop you will be more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide.
Who should attend SafeTALK?
This training is suitable for everyone over 18 who wants to help prevent suicide and is prepared to become suicide alert.
How is SafeTALK different from other Workshops?
SafeTALK is more than general awareness training. You will be learning alertness skills. It is not at the advanced stage of a two-day ASIST intervention workshop.
Please note that SafeTALK is not recommended for any participant that has been personally bereaved or affected by a suicide in the previous twelve months.
Advance bookings are Essential-workshop will only run depending on sufficient numbers.
