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.

Getting to the Venue
The Synergy Centre is located opposite the Odeon Cinema, between Vodka Revolutions and Walk About. We recommend getting to the venue by public transport, geting off the bus at Churchill Square and walking down West Street, or getting off at North Street. Most buses which take you to the city centre will take you up North Street and to Churchill Square shopping centre.
Timings & Breaks
The course runs from 9:30am-1pm. It is important you arrive promptly– we promise to finish on time! We will have refreshment breaks during the session and hot drinks are available to buy from the venue at 50p per cup.
If you are unable to attend due to illness or another reason, then please do let us know in advance so we can book another person in your place. If you cannot attend but know someone who can attend in your place then let us know the name of your replacement and we will amend our records.
