safeTALK

August 7 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Three (3) social work CEUs available.

safeTALK is a half-day training program that teaches participants to recognize and engage persons who might be having thoughts of suicide and to connect them with community resources trained in suicide intervention. safeTALK stresses safety while challenging taboos that inhibit open talk about suicide. The ‘safe’ of safeTALK stands for ‘suicide alertness for everyone’. The ‘TALK’ letters stand for the practice actions that one does to help those with thoughts of suicide: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

After training, participants will be able to:

  • Challenge attitudes that inhibit open talk about suicide
  • Recognize a person who might be having thoughts of suicide
  • Engage them in direct and open talk about suicide
  • Listen to the person’s feelings about suicide to show that they are taken seriously
  • Move quickly to connect them with someone trained in suicide intervention
