safeTALK is a half-day, evidence-based suicide-alertness workshop that prepares anyone 15 years of age and older, to become a suicide-alert helper. safeTALK requires no formal training or prior experience in suicide prevention.
safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize the invitations and take action. You can expect to leave safeTALK with practical knowledge of how to identify someone having thoughts of suicide and link them to life-saving resources.
On average, 10 people die by suicide each day in Canada
safeTALK participants will learn to:
Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present
Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked
Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide
Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
Know community resources and how to connect someone for further help
On the 28th October 6pm at Victoria Park fieldhouse
