SafeTALK


SafeTALK is ‘suicide alertness’ training. It is three hours in duration and prepares anyone over the age of 18 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.
