Event description

Description

safeTALK is a half-day alertness training that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.

Learning goals and objectives

Over the course of their training, 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
  • Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further help

This community workshop has been partially funded by the Suicide Awareness Council of Wellington Dufferin (www.sacwd.ca) at a reduced cost of $20 per person (regularly $50 per person)

**Space is limited so register early. You MUST pre-register in order to attend**

Address provided upon registration

Looking forward to seeing you there
