safeTALK

safeTALK is a half-day training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:

  • move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide
  • identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.

 

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

The ASIST workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over one million caregivers have participated in this two-day, highly interactive, practical, practice-oriented workshop.

 

suicide to Hope

suicide to Hope is a one-day workshop that provides tools to help clinicians and other professional caregivers work with persons who have suicide experience but are currently safe from suicide, to develop achievable and significant recovery and growth goals.
