safeTALK

safeTALK is a half-day (3.5 hours) suicide prevention training course that can help you make a difference. Know what to do if someone’s suicidal by 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 help you both move forward to connect with more specialised support.

The safeTALK course complements the more comprehensive 2-day ASIST course by conveniently widening the net of suicide alert helpers to ensure that thoughts of suicide aren’t missed, dismissed or avoided.

safeTALK is informative, clear and concise and is suitable for all community members and professionals.

The course aims to:

  • Identify people thinking of suicide
  • Overcome barriers in talking about suicide
  • Identify reasons we may miss, dismiss or avoid suicide
  • Practice using the 4-step model of suicide alertness
  • Connect people at risk of suicide with further appropriate help
  • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide
  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide.
  • Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep-safe) to connect a person thinking about suicide to a suicide intervention resource.

Cost of this course in total is: £60 per person
