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 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 safeTALK steps to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, and intervention caregivers.

Learn steps that help contribute to saving lives.
