Face-to-Face | Suicide Alertness for Everyone (safeTALK) | 11 April 2024

April 11 - 9:30 am - 1:00 pm


safeTALK is a four-hour training that equips people to be more alert to someone thinking of suicide and better able to connect them with further help.

SafeTALK is a half-day training program that teaches participants to recognize and engage persons who might be having thoughts of suicide and to connect them with community resources trained in suicide intervention. SafeTALK stresses safety while challenging taboos that inhibit open talk about suicide. The program recommends that an ASIST-trained resource or other community support resource be at all trainings. 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.

What You Will Learn:

safeTALK participants learn to recognise when someone is thinking about suicide and connect them to an intervention provider, such as a ASIST-trained helper. In this way, safeTALK participants build a safety network around these intervention providers and greatly increase their reach and impact.

  • Reflect on how your attitudes and beliefs about suicide affect your intervention role
  • Clearly and directly discuss suicide
  • Build a collaborative approach to intervention focused on safe outcomes
  • Review immediate suicide risk and develop appropriate safe plans
  • Support the person to move towards life and collaboratively formulate a safety plan

Workshop Features:

  • Skills practice and development
  • A balance of challenge and safety
