Event description

Description

Part 3 of our 3 part mini series on Youth Mental Health and Wellness. This evening will be a 3 hour training for parents on safeTalk

What is safeTALK?

safeTALK is a 3 hour alertness workshop that prepares participants, 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. Suicide alert community members are better prepared to become a vital link in connecting persons at risk with further help.
