Event description

Description

Please join us for a special safeTALK workshop sponsored by The Guelph Community Foundation.

This workshop is being provided at no cost to community members of Centre Wellington.



....Suicide accounts for 24 percent of all deaths among 15-24 year olds..

safeTALK (Suicide Alertness For Everyone) is a half-day, evidence-based suicide-alertness workshop that prepares anyone 15 years of age and older to become a suicide-alert helper. safeTALK is like suicide first aid. Participants need no previous experience or training in order to become more ready, willing and able to be suicide prevention helpers.

safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting a person at risk with life-saving intervention resources.

safeTALK participants will learn to:

  •  Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present
  •  Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked
  •  Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide
  •  Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe

Pre-registration is required as spots are limited. If you register but then find out that you can't make it, no problem, but please contact us so that we can pass along the opportunity to someone else. If the workshop is cancelled by the organizer, for reasons such bad weather, you will be notified by email.

If you have any questions, please email workshops@cmhaww.ca or visit www.cmhaww.ca/events
