Course Content

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.
For more information about the course click here.

 

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 teaching methods?

The session combines various teaching methods, including:

  • Video clips
  • Discussion
  • Practice

 

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.

 

A safeTALK participant says...

 

"SafeTALK is informative, clear and concise I feel much more confident to ask people if they are thinking about suicide and know how to help them."

Cancellation with 1-4 weeks’ notice – 50% charge

2. PublicHealth Brighton & Hove City Council Funded Places

If you have been allocated a Public Health, Brighton & Hove City Council funded place it is our policy to charge a fee (currently £25 for half-day courses) 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 secure future funding for these courses.

 

Whole Courses

Whole Courses can be a cost-effective way of training your team in your own venue. If your organisation is based in Brighton & Hove and works with at risk target groups we may be able to offer a discount based on the allocation of funded places. Please contact us to discuss your exact training needs, and possible discounts and funding options.

Organiser

Grassroots Suicide Prevention

Grassroots Suicide Prevention delivers training that saves lives. Very few, if any of us, are untouched by suicide. We believe that suicide is a community health problem and that suicide can be prevented.

We promote and deliver ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training), a 2 day workshop that teaches a model of suicide first aid. 

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

 We are very happy to deliver courses in-house to your organisation; please ring or e-mail us to find out more.
