safeTALK prepares you to be a suicide alert helper. In only a few hours, you will learn how to
provide practical help to persons with thoughts of suicide. You will develop helping skills and
feel more comfortable assisting persons with thoughts of suicide to connect with professionals
and stay safe.
Expect to be challenged…expect to have feelings…expect to be hopeful. See powerful
reminders of why it is important to be suicide alert. Ask questions and enter discussions. Learn
clear and practical information. Practice the TALK stepsTell, Ask, Listen, Keep Safe.
Conclude with practice in activating a suicide alert.
Most persons with thoughts of suicide go unrecognized—even though they are, directly or
indirectly, requesting help. Without suicide prevention knowledge and skills, these invitations
often go unaccepted, or even unnoticed. With more suicide alert helpers, more people with
thoughts of suicide will get connected to the intervention help they want. Suicide alert helpers
are part of a suicide-safer community. Trainers are certified by Living Works, Inc. as
accomplished practitioners in suicide prevention and intervention. To learn more visit
