in the UK in 2016, nearly 6000 people died by suicide.
safeTALK is a half-day course that offers you practical steps to help someone with thoughts of suicide and helps you both to connect with more specialised support.
The safeTALK course was developed by LivingWorks in Canada and is delivered worldwide. It complements our more comprehensive 2 day ASIST course by widening the net of suicide alert helpers to ensure that thoughts of suicide aren't missed, dismissed or avoided.
Through attending the safeTALK course, you will know what to do if someone's suicidal through following the easy to remember TALK steps – Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep-safe.
These practical steps offer immediate help to someone having thoughts of suicide and helps you both move forward to connect with more specialised support.
The safeTALK course is based on the principles of maximum dissemination and minimum cost.
The Course is aimed at:
Paid or unpaid staff providing a range of services who may have contact with individuals at risk of suicide including but not exclusive to:
► Mental health workers
► Other health and social care workers
► Police & prison service staff
► Drug and alcohol workers
► Counselors and therapists
► Student support services
► Faith groups
The safeTALK half-day workshop is all about maximising suicide prevention learning at a minimum cost. This means that our safeTALK courses can train up to 25 people at a time at a highly competitive rate.
