SafeTalk training helps participants recognize a person with thoughts of suicide and connect them with resources who can help them in choosing to live. Participants don't need any formal preparation to attend the trainingÂ—anyone age 15 or older who wants to make a difference can learn the safeTALK steps.
Participants of this workshop will learn how to:
⦁ Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts may be present,
⦁ Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked,
⦁ Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide,
⦁ Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, Keep Safe, and
⦁ Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further suicide-safer help.
