Training

SafeTALK

safeTALK

Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help. Often these opportunities are missed, dismissed or avoided - leaving people more alone and at greater risk. safeTALK training prepares you to help by using TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to identify and engage people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them with further help and care.

safeTALK is for everybody who wants to help prevent suicide; front line workers, clergy, volunteers, parents, youth (15 years and older), teachers, law enforcement.
