safeTALK Suicide Alertness Training

Tuesday, April 18th, 8:45AM-12:15PM 

safeTALK is a 3 hour alertness training that is designed for anyone age 15 or older, including many in more formal helping roles. The steps learned in safeTALK have helped participants from all walks of life become suicide-alert helpers.

Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives.

Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST or community resources.

To register, please contact Liliana Rodriguez at 631.329.6939. Space is limited and will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis, last day to register is Tuesday, April 11th.

Since its development in 2006, safeTALK has been used in over 20 countries around the world.  safeTALK-trained helpers are an important part of suicide-safer communities, working alongside intervention resources to identify and avert suicide risks.  For more information please go to www.livingworks.net.
