Event description

Description

safeTALK is a half-day training in suicide alertness. It helps participants recognize a person with thoughts of suicide and connect them with resources who can help them in choosing to live. Participants don't need any formal preparation to attend the training- anyone age 15 or older who wants to make a diffrence can learn the safeTALK steps.

In this special WINGS presentation, safeTALK will be presented with a special focus on suicide and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Goals and objectives:

safeTALk helps participants become alert to suicide. Suicide-alert people are better prepared to connect persons with thoughts of suicide with life-affirming help. Over the course of the training, safeTALK participants will learn to:

  • Notice and respond to situations where suicide thougths might be present,
  • Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked,
  • Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide;
  • Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, KeepSafe, and
  • Know the community resources and how to connect someone with thougths of suicide to them for futher suicide-safer help.
  • Understand the link between childhood sexual abuse survivors and suicidality.
