"Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives."

safeTALK is a 3.5-4 hour training in suicide alertness.  It aims to help participants recognize a person with thoguhts of suicide and connect them with resources who can help them in choosing to live.  Participants do not need any formal preparation to attend the training - anyone over the age of 15 who wants to make a difference can learn the safeTALK steps.

Some goals and objectives of the training:

  • notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts may 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, KeepSafe and
  • know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further suicide-safer help.
