safeTALK Suicide Prevention Training
Mon 8 May 2017, 15:00 – 18:00 BST
Community Links are offering the opportunity for students to recieve safeTALK training for FREE during Mental Health Awareness Week. Book now to avoid missing out!
At the end of the course participants will be able to:
• Recognise those who may be at risk of suicide
• Ask individuals clearly and openly about their thoughts of suicide
• Connect individuals at risk to local sources of help
Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help. Often these opportunities are missed, ignored or avoided – leaving people more alone and at greater risk. safeTALK training prepares you to help by using TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to recognise and talk to people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them with further help. This three- hour course is suitable for anyone who may come into contact with individuals at risk of suicide, either at work or in their personal life. It is not suitable for those who have recently been bereaved by suicide.
This training is being run as part of the health and wellbeing programme for Mental Health Awareness Week.
