safeTALK — Suicide Awareness for Everyone

Although many professionals are trained in suicide prevention, it is sometimes challenging for a person with thoughts of suicide to think of, or consider, seeking out a professional as a resources, or even know how to access their services.

Family, friends or even co-workers may be the first people to notice changes in behaviour that could lead to thoughts of suicide, so it is especially important that they know how to recognize and then calmly and confidently talk about thoughts of suicide.

This training is the appropriate solution for the first contact of someone who may be having thoughts of suicide.
