SafeTALK or "Suicide Alertness for Everyone" is an internationally recognised half day training programme which increases suicide alertness, preparing participants to identify those at risk of suicide and how to connect them with suicide first aid resources and specialist supports.
As an accredited safeTALK training provider, 3TS has provided this service to businesses, sports clubs, community organisations, other NGOs such as the Simon Community and third level colleges. 3Ts is approved by the National Office for Suicide Prevention to deliver safeTALK
Since 2014, 3Ts has delivered safeTALK training to almost 400 people annually. Those who benefit from this specialised suicide alertness training have been able to put their training into action in their homes and workplaces, sports clubs and wider communities.
3TS provides this training free of charge, with fundraising activities covering the larger cost of the initiative.
