safeTALK

Suicide Alertness for Everyone 
This 3 hour workshop alerts one to warning signs indicating risk of suicide.  The workshop emphasizes the importance of recognizing the signs, communicating with the person at risk and getting help or resources for the person at risk.

Learning Objectives
As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:
  1. Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss, or avoid suicide.
  2. Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  3. Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe) to connect a person with thoughts of suicide to suicide first aid intervention caregivers.
Learning Methods
Powerful video clips illustrate both non-alert and alert responses. Discussion and practice help stimulate learning. Learn steps that contribute to saving lives.
