Training

SafeTALK

safeTALK

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.

safeTALK is for everybody who wants to help prevent suicide; front line workers, clergy, volunteers, parents, youth (15 years and older), teachers, law enforcement.

The cost for the half-day workshop is $67.80 ($60.00 + HST).

suicideTALK: An exploration in suicide awareness

safeTALK

suicideTALK is a session that invites interested community members to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community. Dealing openly with the stigma around suicide, this exploration focuses upon the question, "Should we talk about suicide?"

As a suicideTALK-informed session member, you will be better able to:

  • understand how personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety;
  • appreciate how the steps taught in safeTALK can be used to help prevent suicide;
  • choose among ways to help protect, preserve and promote life in a suicide-safer community.
