Identify people having thoughts of suicide
Learn how to identify and help people who may be having thoughts of suicide.
Attend the half-day safeTALK program and learn to:
- Identify people who may have thoughts of suicide.
- Ask them directly about the possibility of suicide.
- Connect them to life-saving resources.
SafeTALK is open to anyone 15 years or older, regardless of prior experience. Both professionals and members of the general public can benefit from safeTALK.
Why take safeTALK?
Life-saving: Anyone can experience thoughts of suicide. By connecting friends, family members, colleagues and students with helpful resources, safeTALK participants save lives in their communities.
Simple yet effective: SafeTALK uses the easy-to-follow TALK steps – Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe – and includes time to practise them so the knowledge is retained.
Engaging: SafeTALK is a dynamic training that incorporates presentations and audiovisuals. It invites participants to become more alert to the possibility of suicide and how to prevent it.
Trusted: More than 50,000 people attend safeTALK each year. SafeTALK is used in more than 20 countries worldwide, and many communities, organisations and agencies have made it a core training program.
Proven: Studies show that safeTALK participants feel more confident asking people about suicide, connecting them with life-saving resources and keeping them safe until those resources can take over.
This course is a four-hour face to face workshop (not available as a virtual workshop).
Resources: SafeTALK Pack – includes a participant workbook, pocket card and safeTALK suicide alert helper sticker.
