safeTALK teaches members of the community to recognize people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them to suicide first aid resources. This 3-hour workshop offers a carefully crafted set of helping steps and the use of creative educational processes to make it possible for attendees to leave safeTALK willing and able to be suicide alert helpers.


In only a few hours, attendees can learn how to:

• provide practical help to people with thoughts of suicide

• be a suicide alert helper

• be aware that opportunities to help a person with thoughts of suicide are sometimes missed, dismissed and avoided

• activate a suicide alert using TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe)

• connect people with thoughts of suicide to people trained in suicide intervention
