Course Content

SafeTALK - Suicide Alertness For Everyone - is a half-day course that can help you make a difference. Learn to identify people with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. This training prepares you to be a suicide alert helper by following the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe). These steps offer initial help in order to connect people having thoughts of suicide with more specialised support.

What are the course aims?

  • Identify people thinking of suicide.
  • Overcome barriers in talking about suicide.
  • Identify reasons we may miss, dismiss or avoid suicide.
  • Practice using the 4-step model of suicide alertness.
  • Connect people at risk of suicide with further appropriate help.

What are the teaching methods?

The session combines various teaching methods, including:

  • Video clips
  • Discussion
  • Practice

What are the training outcomes?

As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:

  • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide.
  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide.
  • Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep-safe) to connect a person thinking about suicide to a suicide intervention resource.


Additionally, each participant will receive a certificate, a wallet-sized reference card plus a resource pack with information about sources of support for people having suicidal thoughts.

safeTALK participants say...

"I feel much more confident to ask directly and to talk about and use the word suicide. It made us feel relaxed and not intimidated by the topic. I now understand my possible role as a suicide helper."

"Quite simply this is some of the best training I've ever received in my life" - from a long time member of the Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team
