Event description

Description

This is a working-lunch workshop. Join us at 10am for coffee and the first part of the workshop. We'll break around noon for lunch (bring your own lunch,) and we'll resume the last part of our workshop around 12:30pm.
******************************
The "safe" in safeTALK stands for Suicide Alertness For Everyone. The "TALK" is an acronym for the steps you will learn about in this brief 3.5 hour suicide prevention workshop. The steps are:
-Tell
-Ask
-Listen
-KeepSafe

As we go through each of these steps, and look at reasons why individuals miss, dismiss, or avoid the opportunity to talk about suicide, participants develop a better understanding how to best support a person who is having thoughts of suicide. Participants not only report feeling more ready, willing, and able to help support a person having thoughts of suicide; they also report feeling less apprehensive about talking about suicide. We help take the stigma out of suicide. And that alone helps to support life!
