safeTALK is a half day training programme (3.5 hours) that prepares participants over the age of 18 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 community. Following a safeTALK workshop you will be more willing and able to perform an important helping role for persons with thoughts of suicide.
