Suicide Alertness Training (safeTALK)

Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. safeTALK-trained alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. Through examples, discussion and practice, you will learn practical steps to help activate a suicide alert that connects someone having thoughts of suicide with more specialized intervention care. 

safeTALK is a 3-4-hour training session that prepares participants to identify people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them with suicide first aid resources in our community. safeTALK is available to anyone at UTM.  In addition to helping to make our community safer from suicide, participants will receive certificate for completion of this internationally recognized training.  safeTALK training is also recognized on the co-curricular record
