End Time: 4:00 PM
 SafeTALK is a standardized 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 are receptive to help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. A 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 thoughts of suicide to suicide first aid and intervention caregivers. Any member of a group, school, workplace or community over the age of 15 is welcome to attend. Registration required.
