SafeTALK is a training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety.
As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:
Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide;
Identify people who have thoughts of suicide;
Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.
SafeTALK attendees will view powerful video clips that illustrate both non-alert and alert responses. Attendees will also participate in discussion and practice to help stimulate learning. You will learn the steps that contribute to saving lives.
Why Should I come to safeTALK? In only a few hours, you will learn how to provide practical help to persons with thoughts of suicide. Expect to leave safeTALK more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide.
