When people are in crisis it can be difficult to know how to respond. SafeTALK is a short, interactive session which enables participants to recognise when someone might be having thoughts of suicide and to consider how best to engage with them and connect them to community resources trained in suicide intervention.
Who should attend?
SafeTALK is designed to be an introductory course for anyone interested in learning to be suicide aware.
By the end of this course participants will have:
• awareness that people at risk of suicide are often not given help due to cultural myths and misinformation;
• the ability to recognise when a person might be having thoughts of suicide;
• the skills to be able to engage that person in direct and open talk about suicide;
• the ability to move quickly to connect them with someone trained in suicide intervention who can review the risk and develop a plan to reduce the risk of harm or death.
