Event description

Description

SafeTALK is "suicide alertness" training. safeTALK teaches you to recognise persons with thoughts of suicide and to connect them to suicide intervention resources.


This training event is especially for those 15 - 25yr olds.

  • You will learn to identify the signs of suicide intent

  • Gain confidence in providing practical assistance to people with suicidal thoughts and to activate a ‘suicide alert’ by following the ‘TALK’ (Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep Safe) steps.

  • How to communicate with a person at suicide risk.

We know that young people might talk to other young people first so this is why we are targeting those 15 - 25 to help upskill you.

In addittion to the trainer 6VT will have youth workers at the event.

Those with recent personal experience of suicide may find this training upsetting & are advised to think carefully before applying if this is the right time for you.


PLACES ARE LIMITED SO PLEASE IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND DO CANCEL THE TICKET. THANKS
