SafeTALK is a half-day suicide alertness training that prepares attendees, 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 suicide alert helpers are trained to move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide.

What happens at the SafeTALK training?

  • Expect to feel challenged, empowered and hopeful.
  • See video clips which illustrate both non-alert and alert responses.
  • Ask questions and enter discussions.
  • Learn clear and practical information on what to do if you need to support someone who is at risk of suicide.
  • Discuss and practice the TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen, and Keepsafe) steps so that you will have the skills to connect a person with suicidal thoughts to other relevant supports and help.
  • Learn about the available supports and resources in your community.
*Suitable for over 18 years old.
