Description

This workshop has been sponsored by #GetInTouchforHutch! We are very pleased and grateful for #GetInTouchforHutch’s continued dedication to suicide prevention in Centre and North Wellington. Because of this generous donation, this safeTALK workshop is now free of charge.

~ On average, 10 people die by suicide each day in Canada ~

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. Sorry no refunds but you can transfer to another session or another person. If the workshop is cancelled by the organizer, for reasons such low enrollment, you will be notified by email and registration fees will be fully refunded.

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