SafeTALK is a half-day (4-hour) training program that teaches participants to recognize and engage persons who might be having thoughts of suicide and connect them with community resources trained in suicide intervention. SafeTALK stresses safety while challenging taboos that inhibit open talk about suicide. An ASIST-trained resource or other community support resource will be at this training. The ‘safe’ of safeTALK stands for ‘suicide alertness for everyone’. The ‘TALK’ letters stand for the practice actions that one does to help those with thoughts of suicide: Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe.

Program Objectives

After training, participants in the safeTALK program should be able to:

  1. Challenge attitudes that inhibit open talk about suicide.
  2. Recognize a person who might be having thoughts of suicide.
  3. Engage them in direct and open talk about suicide.
  4. Listen to the person’s feelings about suicide to show that they are taken seriously.
  5. Move quickly to connect them with someone trained in suicide intervention

I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, and grief.
