safeTALK: suicide alertness for everyone Training will take place in the afternoon. There are CEU's available. The CEU's are handled through LivingWorks. Please visit LivingWorks website for more information regarding CEU's.

safeTALK is a half-day alertness training that prepares anyone over the age of 15, 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, such as caregivers trained in ASIST.

Since its development in 2006, safeTALK has been used in over 20 countries around the world, and more than 200 selectable video vignettes have been produced to tailor the program’s audio-visual component for diverse audiences. safeTALK-trained helpers are an important part of suicide-safer communities, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.

Training features:

  • Presentations and guidance from a LivingWorks registered trainer
  • Access to support from a local community resource person
  • Powerful audiovisual learning aids
  • The simple yet effective TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
  • Hands-on skills practice and development

safeTALK helps expand the reach of suicide intervention skills in communities around the world.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.

Once you register, we will send more detailed information as the time approaches.

There will be a suggested donation of $10 per person. If you are a student, the suggested donation is $5 per person with student ID.
