safeTALK Training (Suicide Alertness for Everyone)
If you were concerned that someone was suicidal, would you know how to approach the topic or what steps to take to get them the help they need? If you don't know how to start to safely have the conversation, you may be tempted to put it off. But there is training available that can teach you in a matter of hours what to do if you're concerned for someone else.
SafeTALK or "Suicide Alertness for Everyone" is an internationally recognised half day in-person training programme that increases suicide alertness. It equips participants to identify those at risk of suicide and teaches them how to connect them with suicide first-aid resources and specialist supports. Participants learn to help prevent suicide within their community, workplace, at home and more.
