SafeTALK is a two-and-a-half to three-hour 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:
Powerful video clips illustrate both non-alert and alert responses. Discussion and practice help stimulate learning. Learn steps that contribute to saving lives.
The Role of SafeTALK in a Suicide Safer Community:
SafeTALK was designed to teach skills that complement caregivers with suicide intervention skills like those learned in ASIST, LivingWorks’ two-day workshop. SafeTALK-trained helpers make early recognition and referral possible on a far larger scale than any community can afford to do through suicide intervention skills training alone. When there are enough SafeTALK trained persons available, suicide intervention caregivers will be used more often.
