Suicide Prevention Training

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 to the help they need?  If you don't know where 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. 

3Ts provides this training workshop free of charge to interested groups and organisations.  Our fundraising activities cover the larger cost of the initiative. 

As an accredited safeTALK training provider, we've delivered this training to all sorts of businesses, sports clubs, community organisations, the Defence Forces, other NGOs such as the Simon Community and to third level colleges.  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.

"Before this training, I felt I'd be completely unprepared to deal with a situation of someone thinking of suicide, but now I feel much more confident."
