Why come to SafeTALK?

Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help. Often these opportunities are missed, dismissed or avoided leaving people more alone and at greater risk. SafeTALK training prepares you to help by using TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to identify and engage people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them with further help and care.

Who should attend SafeTALK?
