About this Event

Description

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.

What are the course aims?

  • Identify people thinking of suicide.
  • Overcome barriers in talking about suicide.
  • Identify reasons we may miss, dismiss or avoid suicide.
  • Practice using the 4-step model of suicide alertness.
  • Connect people at risk of suicide with further appropriate help.

What are the training outcomes?

  • As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:
  • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide.
  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide.
  • Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep-safe) to connect a person thinking about suicide to a suicide intervention resource.

Additionally, each participant will receive a certificate, a wallet-sized reference card plus a resource pack with information about sources of support for people having suicidal thoughts.

Note: safeTALK's focus is on developing suicide-alert helpers in the community and does not provide full intervention skills training; if you are seeking intervention skills training please see our ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) workshop.
