SafeTALK Suicide Prevention Trainings

Become a suicide-alert helper and save lives.

SafeTALK is a 4-hour training that prepares participants to become suicide-alert helpers.
Individuals who deal with suicidal thoughts don’t usually want to die, and often give hints to people in their lives that they are formulating such thoughts. Without education, crucial players can miss subtle signals of need for help, which result in dangerous outcomes. Safe-TALK helpers are capable of recognizing such invitations and springing into action.

The SafeTALK movement was established in 2006 and has since grown in over 20 countries worldwide.
