safeTALK is a half-day alertness training program that can help prepare you to become a suicide-alert helper, regardless of your prior experience or training. Many of us are supporting increasing numbers of students in crisis, and as professionals, it can be overwhelming at times to know how best to help. safeTALK training may be a tool that you are interested in learning more about. Increasing the number of safeTALK-trained helpers on our campus contributes to a suicide-safer community, increases your understanding of intervention resources and averts suicide risks.

Since its development in 2006, safeTALK has been used in over 20 countries around the world. safeTALK-trained helpers are an important part of suicide-safer communities, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.

Training features:

  • Presentations and guidance from a LivingWorks registered trainer

  • Access to support from a local community resource person

  • Powerful audiovisual learning aids

  • The simple yet effective TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe

  • Hands-on skills practice and development

  • safeTALK helps expand the reach of suicide intervention skills in communities around the world. If you have any questions about safeTALK please feel free to contact Rebecca Smith (safeTALK trainer) rebecca.smith@uwo.ca
