SafeTALK is a 3-4 Hour Training that provides practical, immediately usable techniques to identify people with thoughts of suicide and connect them immediately to local accessible help.  Each class provides a local, current resource list.

Students have a chance to practice in a relaxed, safe setting and become comfortable with the techniques.

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 from others. SafeTALK teaches participants to recognize their invitations, engage the person with thoughts of suicide, and connect them with intervention resources to help them stay from suicide.  

In this 3.5 Hour Training participants will learn to:

•       Notice and respond to situation where suicide thoughts may be present

•       Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked.

•       Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide.
