safeTALK is not designed for those that have experienced a recent suicide loss.

If you are grieving the recent loss of a loved one to suicide, we recommend you join a support group or visit http://www.afsp.org/coping-with-suicide to find useful information related to coping with suicide loss.

More resources at http://www.dcsheriff.net/yess/suicide-prevention.

safeTALK, about three hours in duration, is a training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. 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 KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, and intervention caregivers.

Powerful video clips illustrate both non-alert and alert responses. Discussion and prac-tice help stimulate learning. Learn steps that contribute to saving lives.
