SafeTALK is Suicide Alertness for Everyone
Whether directly or indirectly, most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. safeTALK is a 3-4 hour training that prepares participants to recognize these invitations and connect a person with thoughts of suicide to intervention resources. Powerful videos illustrate the importance of suicide alertness, while discussion and practice stimulate learning.
Who should attend?
Anyone who works or lives in St. Albert and is 15 or over who wants to help people be safer from suicide.
By the end of the training, participants will be better able to:
- Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss, or avoid suicide.
- Recognize people who have thoughts of suicide, and
- Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person with thoughts of suicide to a suicide first-aid intervention caregiver.
