Safe Talk is a 3 hour training programme that prepares participants to identify persons with Suicidal thoughts. It also helps participants to gain a clear understanding of what steps they need to take in order to help individuals with these thoughts. 

 People at risk are more likely to get life-saving help when they need it most, if more people in their community have SafeTalk suicide alertness skills.

Organisers play a key role in bringing these vital skills to a community or workplace, individuals and the corporate sector have a key role in all of this.

This training is suitable for anyone over 18 years of age, who has not been affected by a recent loss, who wants to help prevent suicide in their community.           

Learning goals and objectives

Over the course of their training, SafeTalk participants will learn to:

  • Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present
  • Recognize invitations for help, that are often overlooked
  • Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide
  • Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
  • Identify community resources and learn how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide, with people and agencies that can help.

Places are limited. Pre  booking is essential.
