Event description

Description

safeTALK is intended as "suicide alertness" training. safeTALK teaches participants to recognise persons with thoughts of suicide and to connect them to suicide intervention resources. It is designed for communities or organisations that already have ASIST* trained helpers in place to maximise intervention as the main suicide prevention focus. (*Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)

safeTALK is a half-day session. It complements ASIST and other intervention training courses. It does NOT deliver the full intervention skills of ASIST but participants learn how to provide practical help to persons with thoughts of suicide. safeTALK prepares participants to activate a suicide alert by following the TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) steps.

This training is delivered by Martin Kirwan, Moray Council with support from fellow ASIST trainers including Heidi Tweedie from the Moray Wellbeing Hub peer trainer pool.

The Moray Wellbeing Hub is organising the community tickets for this training - for organisations and council staff please contact Martin Kirwan directly.
