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, such as caregivers trained in ASIST.

This particular safeTalk training is being offered for free (regular cost $40) thanks to a Ministry of Education Regional Parent Reaching Out Grant. Space is limited to 25 participants on a first come, first served basis and you can register through the link below.

The trainers for these sessions are Sarah Bowerbank (YWCA) and Kyle Rolph (Elgin County YFC/Youth Unlimited)

Includes participant training manual, wallet card, stickers, and light refreshments.
