SafeTALK Suicide Prevention Training

John H. Daniel Campus

Keysville, VA 23947
SafeTALK, is a 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 care givers.
All participants receive a certificate of completion and a community resource guide.
