safeTALK is a 3-4 hour alertness training that prepares anyone 15 or older--regardless of prior experience or training--to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources.

Learning goals and objectives:
  • Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present
  • Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide
  • Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
  • Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further help

Training features:
  • Presentations and guidance from a registered trainer
  • Access to support from a local community resource person
  • The simple yet effective TALK steps: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe
  • Hands-on skills practice and development
  • Opportunity to obtain 3 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
