Suicide Awareness Training
safeTALK is a half-day (3-4 hour) presentation aimed at increasing suicide alertness. This program alerts community members to signs that a person may be considering suicide. It acknowledges that while most people at risk of suicide signal their distress and invite help, these intervention opportunities are often overlooked.
Participants learn to recognise when someone may have thoughts of suicide and to respond in ways that link them with further suicide intervention help. They will learn how basic TALK steps can link persons at risk with suicide first aid and other help to increase their safety.
Lifeline South Coast offers a range of options for people wanting to train in safeTALK. We can arrange to come to your workplace to train larger groups.
