Attend this 3 hour safeTALK training and learn to:

? Identify people who may have thoughts of suicide,

? Ask them directly about the possibility of suicide, then;

? Connect them to life-saving resources.

safeTALK is a dynamic, interactive training that invites participants to become more alert to the possibility of suicide and how to prevent it. Anyone can experience thoughts of suicide. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. By learning to connect friends, family members, colleagues and students with helping resources, safeTALK participants can help save lives in their communities.
