safeTALK: Suicide Alertness for Everyone

Thursday, July 20, 2017

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This workshop could let you help someone when they need it most.

SafeTALK is a half-day training in suicide alertness for anyone ages 15 and up. It helps participants recognize a person with thoughts of suicide and connect them with resources who can help them in choosing to live.

Participants will learn to:
  • notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts maybe present;
  • recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked;
  • move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss and avoid suicide;
  • apply the TALK steps of Tell, Ask, Listen, KeepSafe;
  • use community resources to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to additional help.

Registration is required - please contact Heather White at hwhite@afsp.org.

SafeTALK is limited to 40 participants and takes about 3 hours; more information can be found at livingworks.net.

Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and the Western Mass chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
