SafeTALK: Suicide Alertness For Everyone
Wednesday, 5 September 2012 from 13:30 to 17:00 (BST)
Brighton And Hove, United Kingdom
SafeTALK - Suicide Alertness For Everyone - is a half-day course that can help you make a difference. Learn to identify people with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. This training prepares you to be a suicide alert helper by following the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe). These steps offer initial help in order to connect people having thoughts of suicide with more specialised support.

Getting to the Venue
We are using a room in the City Coast Church building so please go to reception and ask for Grassroots Training.
The venue is on North Street which is off the south end of Boundary Road in Portslade. Bus numbers 1,1A and 20 stop nearby. Portslade train station is about 10-15 minutes' walk away. There is a free car park under the church.
Timings & Breaks
The course runs from 1.30pm to 5pm. It is important you arrive promptly– we promise to finish on time! We will have refreshment breaks during the session and drinks and biscuits will be provided.
1. Paying Places
Cancellation with more than 4 weeks notice – 10% charge
Cancellation with 1-4 weeks notice – 50% charge
Less than 1 week notice – no refund
2. PCT Funded Places
If you have been allocated a PCT funded place it is our policy to charge a fee (currently £25 for SafeTALK) for non-attendance with less than one week’s notice. This is because there are certain costs that we incur in organising the course and these are non-refundable at short notice. We have introduced this policy because if we are unable to demonstrate good attendance to our funders, it will be more difficult to get future funding for these courses, and less likely that we will be able to provide courses free of charge.
- If you are unable to attend due to illness you will need to send us a copy of a medical certificate for cancellation fees to be waived.
- Delegate substitutions can be made at any time without charge.

We offer a range of training programmes to complement ASIST, including SafeTALK (Suicide Alertness), One in Four (Mental Health Awareness), Recovery (Mental Health and Recovery), Workplace (Mental Wellbeing in the Workplace) and Self Injury (Working with Self Injury).
