What is safeTALK?
safeTALK is a half day training programme that prepares participants to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. These specific skills are called suicide alertness and are taught with the expectation that the person learning them will use them to help reduce suicide risk in their communities.

Safe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to
suicide first aid intervention givers or other
